Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet, hands, and ears that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, and helps to restore homoeostasis (balance) in the whole body.
There are 7000-7200 nerve endings in the human foot, and each of these is a reflex point that corresponds to a body part. Reflexologists know which are of the foot corresponds to which part of the body by learning maps of the feet.
Reflexology is an excellent whole body treatment, and can be used both to prevent illness and to encourage the body to heal. It is particularly useful for stress and related disorders, emotional disorders, digestive problems, circulatory disorders, menstrual problems, insomnia, fatigue and most chronic and acute illnesses.
Reflexology is available at our salon for £20.
