What is Reflexology?


Reflexology is a unique ancient healing art, a form of natural healing that is both a science and an art. The science lies in the principle that there are reflex areas in the hands and the feet which correspond to all parts of the body. The art is in the unique technique applied to the reflex areas by the thumbs and fingers.

Reflexology is a holistic therapy that treats the feet or hands to benefit the whole body.   It aims to restore balance by increasing circulation to the internal organs, glands and other parts of the body.

Reflexology works with subtle energy flows. It revitalises the body so that the natural healing mechanisms of the body can do their own  work.
