Reflexology is an ancient holistic therapy that focuses on working to stimulate reflex points of the feet. This therapy was practiced by the Egyptians and Chinese as early as 2300BC.
Each reflex point of the feet acts as a mirror that corresponds to a particular organ in the body. By stimulating these points the 7000 nerves and the 26 bones in the feet help release blockages and re-balance the energy flow in the body. This brings the body back into its natural equilibrium which promotes the body’s natural healing power. Clinical Reflexology helps to alleviate symptoms of conditions by working with the organs of the body specific to that condition.
Reflexology is ideal for benefiting body, mind and spirit especially in this modern age where we encounter high levels of stress. If stress is managed well, the body will remain working harmoniously. If not, our body’s natural defence mechanism will be out of balance, making us prone to illness.
Like our homes which require a regular clean, our bodies also deserve a good cleanse to rid themselves of clutter and toxins. Living in big cities and towns with constantly rising pollution and toxic chemicals, highly processed or fast food, depleting our energy, it is important to help the body evacuate accumulated toxins and replenish its energy thus, helping us to remain healthy.
The therapeutic effect of reflexology leaves you feeling relaxed, calm, and revitalised. It will give you a general feeling of wellbeing and rid the body of toxins and impurities. It will help improve circulation, loosening up any stress or tension particularly in areas where blood flow has been restricted.
On a long-term aspect, regular relaxation through reflexology helps prevent stress and improve the overall functioning of the immune system. Reflexology can help to boost your energy level. It is great for releasing stress and tension in the body. Reflexology overall helps to promote good health, relaxation and wellbeing.

A detailed medical history will be taken to help tailor the treatment. These records remain confidential and will be used to assist in monitoring your progress, should you decide to have a course of treatments.
Various techniques of the thumbs and fingers applications are used. All areas of both feet will be worked on, alternating between each foot in the area worked on as one foot represents one half of the body. This way both feet and all corresponding organs are balanced out rather than working on the whole foot first then swapping to the other.
A gentle to firm pressure may be applied to your feet depending on your level of sensitivity. Any tenderness or soreness experienced on a reflex point is just a way of the body telling us that there is an imbalance or congestion in that area. Working thoroughly on problem spots can help release blocked or stagnant energy, thus restoring and enhancing the body’s own natural healing power.
