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 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 has been practised in some form for thousands of years. In fact, the first solid proof was found on a pictograph painted on an Egyptian tomb dated between 2500-2330 BC.
 
Reflexology is an excellent whole body system, 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.

It is available at the salon for £20, please phone to book on 01623 400333.
