Reflexology deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond with all the glands, organs and structures in the body. The feet are a mirror image of the body’s structure. Pressure is applied in a set routine, which helps the body maintain a delicate balance. The therapist will consult fully with you, taking into account your emotional, physical and spiritual health. It is thought that illness occurs when ‘energy channels’ in the body are blocked, causing damage to one area or another. Reflexology is aimed at destroying these blocks, allowing the energy to flow freely again and heal the damage.
