I suppose most of us have had a foot massage at some point, and doesn’t it feel great ? Well, ‘Reflexology’ takes that to a whole new level. Pressure is applied to toes and various spots on the sole of the foot, it seems like all the tension that has built up there is being released, such a release of tension gives the body a feeling of instant relief.
Click, and have a look
Reflexology is an application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that ostensibly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the principle that such work effects a physical change to the body, the concept is that each zone or reflex corresponds to a specific organ in the body.

Take your Reflexology to the next level.
This is not a 'new fad' or 'the latest thing from America', oh no the principles of Reflexology healing practice have been in existence for over five thousand years. From the findings made, there is archaeological evidence that establishes the practice of reflexology in Egypt, China and Japan as early as 2700 BCE. However because we seem to lag behind the more 'enlightened' countries the practice of reflexology itself, however, only came to the western world during the 19th century.
In Reflexology, we find the feet, hands and ears are segmented into different zones or reflexes, and these zones correspond to certain parts of the body. As we know the feet and hands are very sensitive, as they have pressure sensors that are related to the flight-or-fight mechanism of the body. This energy flow through the body can be blocked in these zones, causing stress and impairs the proper function of certain organs in the body. When the organs of the body fail to do their work properly, illnesses develop. During your session it is possible that your therapist may be able to detect other underlying problems.
Often, during your Reflexology treatment, other ailments may be highlighted in this manner.
If you've never had a Reflexology treatment, we would advise you "give it a go", if only the once, we realise many people have a 'thing' about
someone touching their feet, but the advantages far out way any 'phobia' you may have. Looking forward to your next appointment then . . . .
