The ancient healing art of Reflexology has been known to man for nearly 5000 years. Congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in the body, treating the whole foot can have a relaxing effect on the whole body.
Reflexology is a unique method using specific thumb and finger techniques to work over many thousand nerve ends and reflex points.
Reflexology helps relieve stress and tension, improves blood and nerve supply and helps the body normalize.
Reflexologists can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, working on these points can release these blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body, tensions are eased and circulation and elimination is improved.
Reflexology stimulates the body's own healing mechanism; it is a safe gentle therapy and can bring relief to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, such as:
Back and neck pain, Circulation problems, Digestive disturbances, Migraine headaches, Constipation, High Blood Pressure, Sinus problems, Insomnia, PMT and Menopausal symptoms, Asthma and Arthritis.
Studies have shown that hospitalization has been reduced following surgery, and regular sessions can improve the quality of life for the aged and frail and is extremely effective on babies and young children especially those suffering colic and digestive and bowel problems.
Reflexology is not intrusive as the client only has to remove their footwear, the session is mostly pleasant, but in some places there may be some discomfort, which passes quickly, this is an indication of congestion or imbalance in the corresponding body part.
Reflexology reaches the receiver on several levels, physical, emotional and spiritual, with results different for everyone. Some may have a feeling of well being and relaxation; some may feel lethargic, nauseous or tearful, these are only temporary and are vital signs that show how your body is responding to the treatment.
Once your body is in tune it is wise to have regular treatments in order to maintain optimum health and well being.
Foot Mobilisation is a gentle therapy that assists the body to 'unlock' the foot that has become rigid, along with exercise it can help strengthen muscles, it can be an alternative to orthotic therapy.

Universal Life energy- the energy of life is all around us and continuously flows through us, it’s what keeps us alive. Negative thought patterns, stress and tension of everyday life combine to create blocks, which causes imbalances to the flow. These blocks are reflected in the body and can manifest as malfunctions or diseases.
The Reiki practitioner uses the discipline of Reiki to channel the Universal Life Energy, through their bodies to the receiver, in a healing capacity thus helping you to grow to another deepening of yourself, helping you release the blockages and imbalances.
