Reflexology can be dated as far back as the Egyptians, it cannot be precisely explained why by stimulating carefully mapped out points across the foot region can detect abnormalities in the body, alleviate and even heal certain conditions.
The similarities in the Structure of the Human Body to the Foot are clear, and symptoms of Tension can be Detected and Eased. Reflexology Massage can stop illnesses from manifesting, drawing the body's attention to Problematic areas, stimulating your natural waste-disposal system and Encouraging Healing. One of the theories behind how Reflexology works is that each of the Nerve endings end on the Foot, people often tell me that they can feel Sensations in areas of their Body as we work the area on the Foot and feel an Improvement in Muscular Tension. If you’re prone to Colds, Irritable Bowl Syndrome, PMS or Water Infections, we can often feel the weakness of the area and when stimulated, Reflexology has been known to ease the symptoms.
It is not advisd to have a Reflexology session before a big day, or during a 'flare up' as sometimes it can trigger a 'healing crisis', which is your body's reaction to healing, such as mucus, sickness or headache

Put your feet up and enjoy a mini ritual of cleansing, assessing and relaxing whilst our expert Holistic Therapists help to release the blockage of an energy, life force, or Chi, that can prevent healing through massage techniques, applied to right and then left foot, using a little cream, in a systematic fashion. It can feel deeply relaxing and you will likely feel more connected to what is going on internally.
One possible scientific rationalization on how Reflexology works is that the pressure applied to the feet can send signals that help restore equilibrium in the nervous system or aid in the release of chemicals such as endorphins that decrease stress and pain and help people feel happy or content.
