Reflexology relaxes the body, calms the mind, and gently soothes the emotions through applying gentle pressure to reflex points on the feet. These points correspond to different body organs and systems, and pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and overall health. For example, a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the kidney reflex point. Through applying pressure with the thumb or finger to this area, it has a healing effect on kidney functioning through dispersing energy blockages. The energy released creates a wonderful feeling of inner peace as tension is dissolved. Many people use reflexology to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like stress, asthma, headaches, PMS and hormonal imbalance. Reflexology is also extremely effective for boosting your immune system and improving your overall sense of wellbeing.
Reflexology has a long history, with the early hatchings beginning in Egypt and can be traced all the way through Europe and even as far as India. Paintings in Egyptian Tombs and stone carvings can be found in India, China & Japan, and all show images depicting the giving and receiving of treatments to various parts of the body. £45 for 60 mins.
