What is Reflexology?
The feet are like a map of the body. The reflex points on the foot correspond to the organs of the body. The Feet 'map' the body and therefore when a certain area or reflex point on the foot is worked on, the part of the body that corresponds to that reflex is worked on as well.
When the body is out of balance, it is not functioning efficiently. By working the reflexes on the feet, an involuntary response is elicited in organs and glands connected by energy pathways to these specific reflexes. This sets a chain reaction in motion, which causes physiological changes to occur throughout the body systems.

+ many other conditions
Who can benefit?
Reflexology is suitable for all ages; woman, men and children. It may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.
After having completed a course of reflexology treatments for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.
What happens when I go for a treatment?
On your first treatment, I shall have a preliminary talk with you to determine your present and past lifestyle.
I will then use my hands to apply pressure to the feet. The application and the effect of the therapy are unique to each person.
I can detect subtle changes in specific points on the feet, and by working on these points may affect the corresponding organ or system of the body.
A treatment session usually lasts for about one hour. A course of treatment may be recommended depending on your body's needs.
How will I feel after a treatment?
After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very definite way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation; sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is transitory and is part of the healing process.
This is vital information to feedback to me as it shows your body is responding to the treatment.
