What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a gentle, noninvasive, totally holistic therapy based on the principal that there are reflexes in the feet. hands and ears that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body. It is a whole body treatment - not just a foot massage.
In a reflexology treatment, pressure is exerted on these reflexes by the thumbs and fingers, combining this with massage, relaxation and joint mobilization techniques. The result is homeostasis (internal balance) in the body.
People who have not yet experienced the healing benefits and immense pleasure of reflexology find it hard to believe that something so enjoyable can be so good for you!
Benefits of Reflexology
When we are stressed, our body's defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.
Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells and removing the waste products of metabolism and other toxins. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows the cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.
Stimulated Nerve Function
By stimulating more than 7,000 nerves in the feet, reflexology encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways. It interrupts pain pathways, reducing pain.
Improved Immune System
Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system thus reducing risk of infection. It cleanses the body of toxins and impurities and also stimulates the production of endorphins, leading to an improved immune system and sense of well-being.
Reflexology revitalizes energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up energy pathways.
