Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy. It is based on the theory that our body’s organs and systems are mirrored to smaller areas on our feet. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is thought that when we become stressed, the bodies vital energies become blocked or out of balance and it is this imbalance that can lead to illness. Reflexology aims to keep the vital energies flowing, therefore keeping the body well and in balance. The positive touch promotes a feeling of deep relaxation, easing stress and tensions.
Reflexology cannot diagnose or cure illness, but by allowing the body to regain balance it can help the body to begin the process of self-healing. It can work alongside conventional western medicine to promote healing and improve wellbeing and vitality.
