Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet and hands that correspond to parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps to restore balance in the whole body.
Our bodies are complex and capable of healing themselves, anything from a small cut or bruise to a major injury or emotional trauma. Systems and organs in the body are constantly working together to heal and repair. All the systems need to be working together to maintain a healthy balance. Stress, injury, or illness can cause the balance to be disrupted when component parts are less effective. Problems can then be compounded as the rest of the body has to work harder to compensate, potentially causing wider problems.
There are approximately 7000 nerve endings in a human foot, and each of these is a reflex point that corresponds to a body part. Reflexology uses special finger/thumb manipulations to stimulate reflex points, which stimulate the flow of energy to the corresponding body part. This gradually helps to restore balance and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself, physically and emotionally. As reflex points are minute, the movements are quite precise, and care must be taken to cover all of them to ensure that the treatment is comprehensive and therefore a holistic treatment for the whole body.
A full Reflexology treatment lasts for approximately one hour. As it’s just feet that are worked on, you will remain fully clothed, simply removing your socks and shoes.
Full Reflexology treatment 1 hour £35
Short treatment ½ hour £25
