Reflexology, or Zone Therapy, is a way of activating the natural healing powers of the body. It is a very ancient therapy, first used by the Egyptians, Indian and Chinese who demonstrated the energy zones that run throug hout the human body - five in each limb, which meet on the trunk of the body. Within these energy zones are located all the organs, glands and other parts of the body. Reflex points on the feet correspond to these energy zones. Points relating to organs on the left side of the body are found in the left foot and vice versa.
Because the entire body is represented on the foot it is possible for reflexology to act on the entire body simply by "working" or massaging the points on the foot. This holistic approach is an important element of all natural therapies.
Reflexology treatment can improve the circulation in the body and eliminate toxins, thus releasing tension and anxiety. It helps to strengthen the body's immune system and has seen to be of help to people suffering migraines, sinusitis, digestive problems and ailments affecting breathing. Reflexology can help with stress related disorders and depression and induces deep relaxation for a good night's sleep. Reflexology treatment creates a sense of well-being both mentally and physically.
During your first visit you will be asked to give a short medical history. The feet are then "worked" by pressure of the thumb and forefinger.
