This is an ancient art and excellent for stress related conditions. By focusing on specific pressure points in the feet, the whole body is helped to relax, rebalance and harmonise.
In reflexology every organ, gland and structure in the body can be mapped out on the soles of the feet or the palms of the hands. These specific areas are known as reflex points, and when stimulated with applied pressure techniques, the reflex is able to affect its corresponding organ, gland or structure, restoring an uninhibited flow of energy to optimise healing.
General benefits of reflexology include:
- Stimulation of the body’s self-healing mechanism by encouraging optimum functioning of all physiological systems
- Stimulation of the thousands of nerve ending in the feet which in turn brings awareness to the composition and balance of the entire musculoskeletal system, as the feet affect the nature of our structure
- Reducing tension by relaxing the neuro-musculo-skeletal system.
- Stimulation of blood flow, helping to clear away accumulated waste products and toxins.
Some waste products appear in the form of crystals made up of uric acid and calcium. These feel like grains of sugar or sand under the skin and usually accumulate around the joints. By working on them, they can be broken down, carried away in the blood and flushed out of the system.Reflexology can be helpful in a wide range of conditions including: migraine, back pain, sinus problems, menstrual problems and kidney disorders.45 mins £29
