Adopted from the ancient Chinese Techniques, reflexology works on all of the body organs by stimulating the reflexes in the feet. Reflexology can be an effective way of relieving pain and helping to restore the body's natural balance and well-being.

Reflexology works by bringing the body back to homeostasis or balance. Any condition where the bodies systems are out of balance will be helped. The procedures of reflexology or zone therapy aim to correct physical and emotional imbalances within the body. The treatment can establish which parts of the body are out of balance and working inefficiently. These imbalances are then corrected and so return the body to a healthy state.
Relaxation is a prerequisite for good health, and reflexology is capable of inducing the alpha state (the most serene level at which healing can effectively take place) which clears the mind and opens it to tranquillity. A reflexology treatment will relax every aspect of the body, mobilising natural healing properties from within to attend the source of distress. Some people have a reflexology treatment purely to achieve a terrific sense of well-being and harmony.
Reflexology relieves congestion, aids circulation, relaxes muscles, calms over-activity and stimulates under-activity in any part of the body. It massively improves co-operation and co-ordination between the bodily systems, it is designed to help you achieve and maintain optimum health. Treatments are particularly beneficial for stress related disorders which can account for 75% of all illnesses. Reflexology lends itself to easing both long-term and acute conditions.
Not only is reflexology useful for treating ill-health, but it is also effective in maintaining good health and preventing illness. The treatment can detect health problems early so as to prevent serious symptoms from developing.
