What is Reflexology?
The principle aim of reflexology is to correct the three negative factors involved in the process of disease: Congestion, Inflammation and Tension.
Congestion conditions are responsible for bringing about growths
Inflammatory conditions are those such as Bronchitis or Sinusitis
Tension is responsible for lowering the efficency of the immune system
Sessions of reflexology are intended to improve the body's circulation and so assist the body in speeding up the elimination of waste products so that toxins do not get the opportunity to build up to harmful levels in the kidneys, liver or bowel. Also, it can help to control the perception of pain by releasing endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, into the bloodstream.
Reflexology works best when the whole body is treated rather than specific areas or conditions. In this way, it improves all of the body's functions andencourages a more natural way of healing.
Although it works in a similar way to accupuncture, reflexology is entirely non-invasive. Instead of using needles, pressure is applied through the fingers and thumbs to the thousands of reflex points to be found in the feet and hands. This in turn has a stimulating effect on specific parts of the body. It is a treatment which is totally safe for all age groups, from 0-infinity.
