Foot Reflexology – The Foot Map to Greater Health and Well-Being
Foot Reflexology is a relaxing holistic foot massage that is an ancient art of applying pressure and massage to reflex points on the feet. It was practised thousands of years ago in Ancient Egypt, India, China and Indonesia.
Foot Reflexology Treatment begins aiming to give complete relaxation and overall benefits through foot reflex manipulation and general foot massage. Treatment is carried out in our therapy room on a comfortable couch. On your first visit an initial consultation will take place, to discuss your medical history and background. Total confidentiality is assured at all times.

Anyone can benefit from the foot reflexology treatment. Reflexology is beneficial when dealing with stress related conditions. An increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy as a way of relaxing, balancing and harmonising the whole body in a stressful world we live in today.

Treatment is carried out with the client lying on the couch, and will start with a therapeutic foot massage leading on to a technique of applying pressure to the reflex points on the foot. Helping to become more relaxed and improve circulation to all parts of the body and revitalizes energy. Usually a treatment lasts about an hour.
Some people may find they feel relaxed and sleepy after a treatment. They may feel tired and need to rest a while. You may experience a term called a ‘Healing Crisis’ reaction involving the body getting rid of toxins. This could increase urination and bowel movements. You could also feel coldness or nausea; these reactions should pass in a few hours or a couple of days.
To gain maximum benefit from your reflexology treatment, try to rest afterwards and drink plenty of water, to flush away toxins.
