Reflexology is a holistic therapy that involves the application of pressure to specific points, known as reflexes, on the feet and hands to encourage the body to heal from within. The therapy is based on the principle
that the feet and hands contain 'mini-maps' of the whole body and that by applying pressure using the fingers or thumbs a reflexologist can have a positive effect on the corresponding parts of the body.
right foot/hand corresponds to the right hand side of the body and the left foot/hand to the left hand side of the body.
Reflexology is so much more than a simple foot rub or hand massage - it is a powerful
therapy which has been shown to have a very positive effect on health and wellbeing.
Reflexology helps to restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium and encourages the bodyto work naturally to heal
