Reflexology

Reflexology is a theory and a therapy that uses the feet as a map, or mirror, of the whole body. By manipulating and applying pressure to certain parts of the feet the whole body can be ‘re-tuned' and brought back into balance. The feet hold mini-maps of the body's anatomy so any body system can be accessed and stimulated by massaging and applying pressure to the corresponding area on the feet. Reflexology aims to stimulate the body's own healing processes to keep it in homeostasis and maintain health and well-being. It works on the whole person, mind, body and soul, encouraging both relaxation and stimulation on a physical and subtle level.
