Reflexology is a therapy which involves using the thumb and fingers to apply pressure to the feet. It is thought that there are points on the feet that relate or mirror the organs, systems and glands of the body.
These are referred to as reflex points and when they are stimulated it brings about a response in another area. Pressure is used on these points to release energy blockages, disperse calcium and uric acid deposits, stimulate blood circulation and promote healing of the body and mind.

History of Reflexology
Reflexology is based upon the ancient Chinese belief that energy flows around the body – Chi. When the Chi is flowing freely then the body is well balanced and working well. If however this energy becomes blocked this may result in illness, mental or physical. Reflexology works on unblocking these energies to allow your mind, body and spirit to be in balance again.
It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy that is safe and very effective at relieving aches, pains, stress and rebalancing energy flow to provide a deep sense of peace, calm and tranquillity.
