Reflexology is an ancient healing art dating back to Egypt, Inca and Chinese civilisations. Firm, rhythmic pressure is applied to reflex points in the hands and feet which stimulates corresponding organs, glands and other parts of the body. Reflexology brings about a state of balance and deep relaxation, which re-vitalises, detoxifies and stimulates the immune system, which in turn encourages self-healing.

Like Traditional Chinese Medicine, reflexology works on the principle that illness occurs when there are blockages in the body's energy channels. The Reflexologist feels these blockages as grainy areas in the feet. Pressure movements on these areas helps to disburse the congestion, improving blood circulation, lymph flow and returning the body systems to a state of natural equilibrium.
