As modern day life brings increasing levels of anxiety and stress it is becoming ever more important to take care of our own health and wellbeing.
Reflexology is a natural and safe therapy which uses the technique of applying gentle pressure to reflex points on the feet or hands. It is based on the theory that different reflex points on the feet and hands correspond with different areas of the body. By stimulating these reflex points a positive response can be achieved in the corresponding part of the body. It is a therapy that can be received by anyone at any age. There are occasionally times when it might not be suitable; if you are concerned please call or email to ask.
The benefits of reflexology
Reflexology does not claim to cure or diagnose. It may however help bring about a state of deep relaxation and stimulate the body’s own healing processes. Reflexology is a very individual treatment, it looks at the person as a whole and is concerned with the causes of the problems rather than just the symptoms. Many people use it as a way of relaxing the mind and body to reduce tension. Often people find it helps them to sleep and improves their mood and sense of wellbeing.
It may offer a number of other benefits including:
• Boosting circulation
• Clearing the body of toxins
• Rebalancing energy and emotional systems
• Assisting with immune system
• Boosting digestive system
• Assisting with pain management
