What is Reflexology?

Reflexology; not just a foot massage

Reflexology is a varied combination of small focused movements, manipulation and massage on various parts of the feet, hands, or face. These reflex points correspond to the areas in the body and can help reduce pain, Oedema and restore balance so you can manage your health and wellbeing.

The touch and pressure movements are specifically designed to trigger a relaxing sensory message from these reflexes which optimise the function of muscles and internal organs and their systems. Because of reflexology’s ability to increase blood supply, additional oxygen and nutrients can travel to cells and help remove waste. As a result, reflexology can benefit the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, immune, and digestive systems.

It all begins with relaxation

Using our bodies and minds creates stresses and tension. Problems occur when we do not take time for ourselves to balance out these stressors.

Studies have found many health problems related to stress which seems to worsen or increase the risk of conditions like obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and asthma.

Reflexology aims to reduce the physical stress by addressing the body, mind and spirit.
