We have a specialist Reflexologist available on Friday afternoons and Saturdays to help you unwind after a long week, other times available.
Reflexology is an ancient method of natural healing and it has been used for many thousands of years in China and Egypt and in more resent years throughout the western world.
There are reflex points on the feet, hands and ears that reflect to the internal organs, glands and various parts of the body.
By stimulating these points they can help to encourage the bodies’ own natural self-healing ability by enhancing the immune system, relieving tension, promoting relaxation, improving circulation and rebalancing the whole body. Reflexology works with subtle energy flows, revitalizing the body so that the natural internal healing mechanisms of the body can do their own work.
Reflexology reduces stress and induces deep relaxation. Modern life causes so much tension, stress on people, work pressure, relationship problems. Daily life seems difficult to cope with for most of the people nowadays. Tension and stress causes the body’s defenses to break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology can help to reduce stress and tension by inducing deep relaxation, placing us in a “safe space”, and allowing the nervous system to clam down and function more normally, circulation proceeds smoothly, blood flow is improved and oxygen reaches all the cells.
As we know how important it is for blood to flow throughout the body, the feet are the farthest from the heart where circulation tends to stagnate, by stimulating specific points on the feet we can improve circulation not only in the feet but the whole body and in turn taking the load of the heart so it doesn’t have to work so hard.
Please note reflexology is not simply a foot massage and it is not a medical treatment.
