Reflexology is an ancient therapy rooted in Arabia, China and Egypt, which is still popular and advantageous today. In fact, due to the stresses and strains of modern everyday life, some may argue that it is even more beneficial and applicable than ever before.
Reflexology is an holistic treatment aimed at rebalancing the mind, body and spirit. It encourages the body to tap into its own healing abilities, gently guiding it to optimum health.
Ignoring the Warning Signs
With the increasing pressure and fast pace of everyday life, we are all very good at ignoring the warning signs that our body sends us if we continually fail to treat it properly. Prolonged stress, anxiety and upset can all cause undue tension and tightening of the nerves and muscles, which eventually affects all of the body’s functions. This can make us more susceptible to colds, bugs and other illnesses which gradually run us down. Reflexology can help to reduce this stress and promote a healthier way of life.
How does Reflexology Work?
Based on the principle that all our organs and bodily systems are mapped on reflex points on the feet (and hands), reflexology is a pressure massage which stimulates the reflex points, encouraging the body to tap into its self healing abilities, which enables it to function to the best of its ability. Treatment can help to remove blockages and imbalances and get the body back in balance.

Do I need Reflexology?
Many people visit me with specific health issues that reflexology can help to eliminate, but I also have a wide range of clients looking for reflexology treatments that help them to relax. Reflexology helps the mind and body to rebalance and quieten, which can improve mood, aid sleep and improve your sense of wellbeing. Anybody, from babies to the elderly, can benefit from reflexology.
I also offer maternity reflexology, as a means of preparing your body for conception, helping you through a healthy pregnancy and also post natal treatments. Click here for more information on maternity reflexology.
Reflexology does not rely on prescription medication, and aims to heal and rebalance the body naturally. It is particularly suitable if you prefer a more natural approach. However, it can sit well alongside other mainstream approaches.
You may have a reflexology session as part of a wider treatment of complementary therapies. I also offer meditation and intuitive counselling, which can help to rebalance your mind and body as well as treating specific ailments.
