... is a gentle contact therapy, using fingers and thumbs. It is a method of gaining access to the body's energy system through the client's feet and hands.
The ancient art of reflexology has been known for many thousands of years. It was first practised by the ancient Chinese and Egyptians, to promote the body's own healing ability.
The reflex points
... on the feet and hands correspond to organs, glands and structures within the body. Reflexology (also known as, reflex zone therapy) identifies ten energy paths, called zones, running down the body. If the flow along these zones runs freely, we remain healthy, if, however, the flow is blocked or hindered, an imbalance will occur which, if not treated will develop as illness or discomfort in the body itself.
A trained reflexologist can disperse crystal build-up on the nerve endings in the feet and hands, detecting blockages in the energy zones and detoxifying the body.
The holistic approach to reflexology also emphasises that blocks in the vital energy can originate in emotional, mental or spiritual conditions, as well as physical ones. It will encourage the body's own ability to heal, restoring the flow of energy to the whole body and achieving balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit.
