Reflexology

Reflexology is the science that deals with the principle that there are areas on the feet and hands, which correspond to the major glands and organs of the body. By using pressure on a specific area of the foot, an effect will be stimulated on the corresponding area of the body.
Reflexology is both a science and an art. As a science, it requires the skill and knowledge of the practitioner. As an art, it requires the dedication and love of the practitioner.

There are many benefits of reflexology:

· Reflexology reduces stress and induces relaxation

Most people who try reflexology for the first time find it far more relaxing than a general body massage. During a treatment, your only requirement is to lie down, face up, with your feet exposed. There is no rolling over, no fussing around with towels and sheets -- you stay completely still. This in itself induces a sense of deep peacefulness. Combined with soft music, lighting and essential oils, the treatment will be the most relaxing hour you will have that day! Many people fall asleep during a treatment, and feel very refreshed on waking.

There is much documented on the effects of a stressful life on the body's health. 75% of illness is said to be stress related. This can be anything from general headaches, neck and shoulder tension, colds and 'flu, even through to cardiac illness, respiratory problems and cancer. Reducing stress is the best preventative measure one can take.

· Reflexology improves circulation

We all know that blood carries vital nutrients through the body, and also carries away toxins and waste products. One of the symptoms of a stressful life is a decrease in blood circulation. An improvement in circulation will allow the body to receive the nutrients carried in blood, and also eliminate the waste products more effectively.

· Reflexology helps the body remove toxins

Other than the circulatory system, the body has other methods for removing waste products (eg. the lymphatic system and the digestive system). A stressful situation will cause these systems to operate below par. Reflexology has the effect of increasing the flow and movement of these systems by helping to decrease the stress held in the body.

· Reflexology revitalises energy

Most of us complain of 'low energy' from time to time. It can appear as an inability to concentrate, a lack of motivation for things that usually excite us, or a physical feeling of tiredness. Reflexology, in making us feel better about ourselves, opens the pathways to increasing the energy levels and renewing us -- both immediately after the treatment and for several days afterwards.

· Reflexology is preventative health care

We are all aware of the importance of preventative health care -- "A stitch in time saves nine". Reflexology clients find they are less susceptible to colds and 'flu, feel generally more able to cope with stressful situations, and have a broader, happier outlook. Preventative health care can save a great deal of time, money and frustration!
