Since all body systems are closely interconnected, anything that affects one part will ultimately affect the whole.
Reflexology is carried out by applying different pressure to the reflexes on the feet or hands. It encourages the body to return to a state of homeostasis (bringing the body back into balance), that may have been lost through stress, illness, negative thoughts, poor diet or injury. Once homeostasis is regained the bodies’ organs begin to function better.
A reflexology practitioner uses light pressure to massage each of the points in the toes, feet and ankles to release tension, remove energy blockages, disperse accumulations of calcium and uric acid, stimulate blood circulation and promote healing of both body and mind. Generally, most clients report that a reflexology treatment is wonderfully relaxing and soothing, and many people fall asleep.
Each session will last about an hour. Some clients book a regularly weekly or monthly session as a preventative measure, to keep their systems balanced and in good working order.
