“Improve your well-being, Naturally, with regular Reflexology”

What is Reflexology and how does it work?

Reflexology is a complementary therapy involving the application of specific pressure techniques to reflex points on the patient’s feet, hands or ears, which correspond to all glands, organs, systems and parts of the body.  This holistic practice aims to treat the patient as an entity, incorporating body, mind & spirit, and helps restore balance by facilitating the body’s own healing potential.

What are the benefits of Reflexology?

The treatment brings about a deep state of relaxation and enables all body systems to work more effectively by:

  • Improving circulation
  • Stimulating nerve function
  • Eliminating toxins
  • Improving sleep patterns
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Relieving stress and pain
  • Speeding up recovery after injury or surgery
  • Normalising blood pressure
