is an ancient holistic healing technique, known and used by Egyptians some 4000 years ago. It is based on the principle that the feet, hands and ears represent a microcosm of the body with all organs and parts reflected in a similar manner. Pressure is applied through the fingers and thumbs to the minute reflex points in and around the feet, hands or ears, which in turn, has a stimulating effect on the corresponding part of the body.
Feet are sensory organs as they gather and give information about the environment and the position of the body to the brain and any given information or stimulus creates a response in internal organs and muscles to be able to react to the environment. Walking and the feet are therefore linked via nerves and brain to the internal organs. This pathway enables Reflexology to influence the whole body.
of Reflexology is to relieve stress and tension, decrease congestion and inflammation, improve circulation and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses. By doing so, it speeds up the elimination of waste products, so that toxins do not have the chance to build up to harmful levels in liver, kidneys or bowel. Improved blood supply brings oxygen and nutrients to all cells, nerve impulses become unblocked and the body's own healing mechanisms are activated.
is a wonderful relaxing experience. You can go so far as saying "pure bliss"! Aromatherapy is included in the treatment to aid in healing, emotional well-being and in restoring balance to the body.
At your first session you will get an explanation of reflexology, benefits, possible reactions and you will be asked questions about your health and lifestyle.
Having removed your shoes and socks you take place in a comfortable recliner chair and the treatment starts with some loosening and relaxing techniques. You can ask questions during the treatment or you just relax and enjoy. After the treatment we can talk about the session and I suggest further actions to help to improve or maintain your health.
Chronic problems take a longer time to improve as it took a long time to manifest. To achieve a noticeable improvement in a condition, we recommend a series of treatments. For maintenance, once a month is a great investment in your health.
is a completely safe form of therapy, as well as being a very relaxing and blissful experience. By helping the body to regain balance in its functioning, it is harmless to properly functioning areas.
As with other natural therapies, Reflexology is not only used to get back to health, it is also great for maintaining health. Prevention is a much better way.......
