The Benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic therapy and treats the whole person improving your overall wellbeing not just your prevailing symptoms. Using Clinical Reflexology techniques, treatments can tailored to your needs and are often targeted at specific health requirements.  Reflexologists  do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe but the therapy which is often used alongside orthodox medicine. Treatments stimulate wellbeing throughout the body using gentle pressure on the feet and can be very beneficial. Many people also use reflexology as a way of counteracting stress and relaxing and rejuvenating both the mind and body.

The benefits of reflexology include -

STRESS REDUCTION - Reflexology can be very effective for relieving stress. Stress is thought to be responsible for many other illnesses and problems, as when we are stressed our immune system is weakened and we are more susceptible to disease. Relieving stress can help relieve current health issues and also prevent future problems.  

BETTER MOOD AND SLEEP - Reflexology helps you to relax on a much deeper level than we can normally achieve and encourages the body to restore good sleep patterns. Many clients report that they have had a fantastic nights sleep following a session. It also encourages the release of endorphins which are our body's natural feel-good chemicals, improving your mood and reducing feelings of stress and anxiety.

IMPROVED CIRCULATION  – By reducing tension, the treatments help blood to flow more freely throughout the body. This can ease congestion and inflammation, remove toxins and allow oxygen and nutrients to get to all the cells in the body more easily. This helps your body to restore its own healthy balance, facilitating healing and optimal health.


STIMULATED NERVE FUNCTION - There are more than 7,000 nerves in the feet. Reflexology stimulates these nerves and encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways. Pain pathways are interrupted and pain can be reduced.


IMPROVED IMMUNE SYSTEM  - Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system, speeding up the elimination of toxins and impurities and reducing the risk of infection. This leads to an improved immune system and a greater sense of well-being.

INCREASED ENERGY - By relaxing you, opening up energy pathways, stimulating endorphins and reducing toxins, reflexology revitalises energy throughout the body.
