"Reflexology helps the body to better restore its balance naturally."
What is Reflexology?
The idea behind reflexology is not new - in fact, it was practised as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptian culture. Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. The body can, therefore, be mapped out in the feet.
Can Reflexology help me?
Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your well being. Some people find it works for them - some don’t. The best way to find out is to try it!
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to better restore its balance naturally.
Usually, after a treatment, your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of well being improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.
There have been some positive research projects carried out with reflexology; however, as yet, there is not a large enough body of evidence for us to make clinical claims of effectiveness.
I trained for a year at The Northern School of Reflexology in York and qualified in 2007. I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists. I am also a Reiki Master and can combine both therapies.
