Reflexology has been well documented by science to relieve symptoms of stress, tension, anxiety and depression.
Reflexology works on the belief that illness manifests itself when vital energy (qi or prana) in the body is blocked, stagnant or low. Applying pressure to particular points on the feet stimulates the meridians (invisible pathways along which vital energy flows) and helps the vital energy to circulate in the body more freely.
Another way of thinking about how reflexology works is that it stimulates nerve endings that send signals to the body’s glands or organs to release chemicals such as endorphins to help balance the nervous system and promote healing and relaxation.
Massage is an increasingly popular and beneficial therapy, particularly with today's busy lifestyles. You may have various symptoms and conditions such as; stress and anxiety, frequent headaches, muscular aches and pains, or you may sit at a desk all day, operate heavy machinery or drive for long periods. All of these things put pressure and strain on our posture and body systems.
Because massage is so important to our general health and well-being, the benefits are wide ranging; alleviating psychological and physical conditions including eczema, depression, insomnia and hormonal imbalances.
