Reflexology is based on the principle, that there are points (reflexes) on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every part of the body. These reflexes are linked to the body’s energy channels and nerve pathways. When these pathways are blocked or interrupted, disease and disorders can follow. Reflexology is a holistic treatment, with the practitioner treating the whole body, not just the presenting symptoms. When the body is relaxed, all the individual body systems can work more effectively, helping to promote ‘homeostasis’, which is defined as ‘keeping things constant in the body’
It helps to promote relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety and can be effective for IBS, PMS, menopausal symptoms and cystitis. It can also be effective for sciatica, neck, shoulder and back issues and can help relieve sinusitis, hay fever, migraine and asthma and boosts the immune system.
