Reflexology is a form of natural, holistic therapy based on the theory that there are points on the feet and hands which correspond to organs, systems and structures within the entire body. This corresponding relationship is called a ‘reflex’. A reflex is stimulated at a certain point to respond to another point or area in the body.
In reflexology by massaging these specific reflex points one can bring about balance of the eight bodily systems in order for the body to work together in harmony and unison and thus creating a feeling of well-being.
This treatment is relaxing and non-invasive, it is ideal for those of us with busy stressful lives, as it balances the body to restore homeostasis or equilibrium. This is often the treatment of choice for expectant mothers who need to literally take the weight off their feet!!
