FOR A FEELING OF WELL BEING AND RELAXATION
1 hour treatment £45
Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on pressure massage which is applied to the feet or hands in order to stimulate the reflex points and bring together a sense of harmony and well-being by balancing all the body systems allowing them to work together for the benefit of optimum health. Each is a reflex point that corresponds to a body part which is stimulated to the flow of energy to the corresponding body part. There are between 7,000 and 7,200 nerve endings in the human foot, when pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, and helps to restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body.
Reflexology, which has its roots in ancient Egypt, according to cave paintings, works on the principle that every organ and system of the body has a corresponding point or zone in the feet. For example, the spot in the centre of the big toe corresponds to the pituitary gland, and on the ball of the foot underneath the big toe there is a point that corresponds to the thyroid and parathyroid glands.
