HOW CAN REFLEXOLOGY HELP?

In today’s busy world, so many of us forget to focus on ourselves. Jobs, daily errands, relationships and life, all get in the way and taking a moment for just ‘me’ seems to be right at the bottom of our very long ‘to do’ lists, when it should be at the top. Reflexology is a holistic therapy (focusing on the overall health-physical, mental and emotional wellbeing) and enables you to escape from the world for just a while, to reconnect with your inner self. Reflexology aims to improve the functions of body systems in a natural and non-invasive way, helping to aid  a good physical and emotional balance.

Reflexology aims to unblock the energy or life force that is not circulating correctly through our bodies and internal organs, which in turn cause these areas to become affected. This process of recovery through massage and gentle pressure, activates the healing activities within and opens up such blockages, so the energy can move through as intended. A balanced body results in a balanced mind.

Reflexology has many benefits and the treatment aims to focus on, and assist the areas that are most affected. An increase in energy levels, the removal of toxins from the body, a decrease in anxiety levels and an increase in the stimulation of the nervous system are just to name a few, but all advantages of this relaxing and effective treatment can be discussed at your reflexology session. Each treatment is aimed specifically at what you need, and you may feel slight sensitivity on areas of the feet when pressure is applied, meaning that the connecting part of your body, is affected or blocked in some way. It is through such pressure that the healing begins and balance is restored.
