Reflexology is an ancient method of stimulating the pressure points on the feet to encourage balance and harmony in the body, which allows it to heal itself.
It is a holistic therapy that aims to treat the person as a whole by treating the cause of the problem. By applying specific massage techniques to congested pressure points or reflexes in the feet, it creates an electro-chemical reaction or impulse, which travels through the meridians to the brain and back to the connecting organ. This unblocks the meridian (energy line) and creates balance. Meridians are pathways of energy that link all of the body’s organs, glands and systems. When we are unwell these pathways become blocked.
Reflexology unblocks congestion in the meridians (energy channels) to stimulate blood circulation where energy has stagnated, thus promoting the self-healing process.
