Reflexology

Reflexology is a way to massage the internal organs of the body through the feet, hands, as well as the face and ears. This form of therapy has been done for hundred of years and yet the full benefits of Reflexology are now only beginning to be understood.

Reflexology existed already in ancient cultures, such as Egypt, India and China. Modern Reflexology however became fully developed in 1930 with the creation of charts mapping out the reflex zones of the feet and hands. This was based on scientific research showing that the stimulation of specific areas of the feet or hands has a harmonising effect on the corresponding parts of the body.

A Reflexologist uses hands only to apply pressure to the feet. For each person the application and the effect of the therapy is unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, and by working on these points the Reflexologist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased, and circulation and elimination is improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse.

 A treatment consists of gently applying massage movements or pressure onto particular areas of the feet (reflex zones), takes about an hour and is usually experienced as deeply relaxing.
