What is reflexology?

Reflexology has been practised for thousands of years. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body. 

Applying pressure to these reflex areas, using the thumb, finger and hand will result in the reduction of stress which promotes physiological changes in the body.

What can reflexology treat?

What happens during a reflexology session?

The reflexologist will work on your feet, or hands if necessary, noting any problem areas.

You may experience some discomfort — this is an indication of congestion or imbalance in a corresponding part of the body. In general, the experience will be pleasant and relaxing.

An average session will last about one hour.

How many treatments will be necessary?

The course of treatment will vary depending on your body's needs. Your reflexologist will discuss this with you at the first session.

After the first couple of treatments you may experience feelings of well-being and relaxation or you may feel lethargic or even nauseous. This is transitory, but does provide your reflexologist with vital information on how your body is responding to treatment.
