The principles behind reflexology and treating the whole body through the feet dates back thousands of years. The feet are a map or mirror of the whole body, each part and major organ of the body has a reflex on the feet. It is a relaxing, non-evasive and therapeutic treatment which combines pressure, manipulation and massage on the feet. Suitable for men and women, reflexology works on the whole person, body and mind which helps to promote physical and emotional healing. The whole body can be re-tuned and brought back into balance by focusing on the reflexes which relate to the bodies major organs and various systems.

This has a direct impact on each of the 11 major systems and organs in the body.
Single treatments are wonderful for relaxation and can help to relieve pain in the feet while a course of regular treatments help to deepen the therapeutic effect of reflexology and can focus on specific ailments and problems.
