Reflexology is a gentle non-intrusive holistic therapy which has been practised for thousands of years.
It is based on the principle that the feet are a map of the body. There are specific reflex points in the feet and hands that correspond to each organ and part of the body.
To see the reflexology foot map click here www.aor.org.uk and follow link for the interactive foot and hand maps.
Using gentle pressure and massage reflexology can help many health problems in a natural way.
It is a method of activating the natural healing process of the body to promote balance/equilibrium within the body. This is achieved by working to normalise the body’s function to work effectively and efficiently.
