What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a holistic healing technique which works on the feet to help heal the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms, with the aim of inducing a state of balance within the body. Therefore a reflexology treatment reaches the receiver on a physical, mental and spiritual level.
The foot massage the reflexologist uses is a specific pressure technique that works on precise points on the feet, as they believe that reflex areas on the feed correspond with all parts of the body, and by applying gentle pressure to these points the related area in the body is stimulated an cleared of congestion, thus bringing the body back into balance.

Reflexology as a preventive treatment
Preventive therapy is useful for people who have completed a course of treatment and wish to stop problems re-emerging as well as for those who may not have any acute symptoms but understand the need for preventative action.
What happens during a treatment?
At the first session I will take a detailed medical history from you to give me an overall picture of your health and lifestyle and to identify a safe and suitable course of treatment tailor made for you. You will then be asked to remove your footwear and lie back on a comfortable reclining couch with headrest and made to feel comfortable and relaxed. Candles will be lit and if you wish, relaxing music will be played during the treatment. Pressure will be applied to your feet and lower legs. If there are any imbalances in your body these may show up on your feet. All areas on both feet will be massaged. At the end of the treatment your feet should feel warm and you should feel very relaxed.
Reflexologists do not diagnose illnesses or claim to cure conditions or prescribe medication. They seek to encourage the body to get back into balance.
Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult during their treatment.
