Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient holistic healing technique used thousands of years ago in Egypt and China. It is an art and science based on the premise that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body. The physical act of applying specific pressure, using thumb, finger and various hand techniques to these reflex areas stimulates the body's own healing mechanisms.

Reflexology is a drug free modality that benefits the whole body, and helps to bring the body into homeostasis, a state of balance. Reflexology is not to be mistaken for a foot massage or any form of massage therapy. It has its own unique protocol. Clients remain clothed during the treatment, removing only their socks and shoes.

Reflexology can complement any health care work.
