Reflexology is a way to massage the internal organs of the body through the feet, hands, as well as the face and ears. This form of therapy has been done for hundred of years and yet the full benefits of Reflexology are now only beginning to be understood.
A Reflexologist uses hands only to apply pressure to the feet. For each person the application and the effect of the therapy is unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, and by working on these points the Reflexologist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased, and circulation and elimination is improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse.
If you have private healthcare you may be able to claim back your treatments with a Refelxologist, it is always worth asking.
