Reflexology is a holistic therapy based on the belief that there are points on the feet – reflexes – that correspond to organs and systems within the body. By stimulating these reflexes with light pressure it is aimed to restore balance. Reflexology does not diagnose, nor offer a cure for medical conditions but is a therapy designed to activate the body’s own healing powers.
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and nurturing treatment and many people like to have it for this reason alone. It can also be helpful for conditions such as hypertension, depression, stress & insomnia. The clearing and balancing effects of reflexology make it particularly helpful for such things as digestive disorders and sinus congestions etc.
