Reflexology is a non-invasive holistic (treats the mind as well as the body) and complementary health therapy that promotes deep relaxation and wellbeing. By reducing stress in peoples lives reflexology can be key in optimising good health and building resilience. Reflexology can be used safely alongside standard healthcare to promote better health.

It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body and reflexologists work these points and areas. Your reflexology appointment provides time for relaxation where you receive one to one attention and supportive touch in an empathetic environment.

The theory of reflexology is that all the systems and organs of the whole body are mirrored or reflected in smaller peripheral areas, for example the feet, hands, ears and face. As reflexologists we simply work those reflected areas with sensitive fingers, aiming to bring those areas back to balance and therefore aiding the body to work as well as it can. Reflexology very much works on an individual basis facilitating your body’s own potential for well-being.

Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between. However, there may occasionally be times when it is not suitable to have this treatment. The best advice we can give you is to get in touch and ask. Please note: reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.

Professional reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing.

The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.

There have been some positive research projects carried out with reflexology; however, as yet, there is not a large enough body of evidence for us to make clinical claims of effectiveness.

With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for us to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs and reflexology may be one of the ways to mitigate the stresses of modern life.
