What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary therapy, which has been practised for over 5000 years and was introduced to the modern, western world over 100 years ago. Reflexology is based on the theory that specific points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with all the organs and body systems. Reflexologists believe that this deeply relaxing holistic therapy can help the body to rebalance, by aiding its own healing reactions.
Reflexologists are also of the belief that working these points or areas may improve: wellbeing; mood; sleep; relaxation, as well as release tension. Improved well-being is much more than a mere absence of illness or pain; it can also include an improved frame of mind, a reduction in stress levels and increased happiness.
Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone from newborn babies to those who are at the older and wiser end of the spectrum. Please note that clients under 16 will require the consent of their parent/guardian and also to be accompanied by their parent/guardian throughout their reflexology session.
As holisitic practitioners, reflexologists are there to support you as an individual and promote your wellbeing. Therefore, reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe or cure.
