Reflexology has a harmonizing effect on the whole body and is used to restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium and encourage healing.

A reflexologist uses hands only to apply gentle pressure to the feet. For each person the application and the effect of the therapy in unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, and by working on these points the therapist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased, and circulation and elimination is improved. This therapy encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace, often counteractive to a lifetime of misuse.

A Session

The session starts with a 10 minute foot bath in mineral salts. The therapist then begins to work on your feet noting problem areas. There may be discomfort in some places but it will pass, and is a sign of congestion or imbalance in a corresponding part of the body.

A course of treatment varies in length depending upon your body's needs. After the first treatment or two your body may respond in a very definite way; there is usually a feeling of well being and relaxation; you may feel tired. It is vital to share with your therapist how your body responds to the treatments.
