Reflexology is an ancient therapy dating back thousands of years and is believed to have been used by the Egyptians as well as being part of the Chinese medicine system.


Reflexology as it is today was introduced into the UK in the 1960’s. As with other complementary therapies Reflexology embraces the concept of treating the person as a ‘whole’ not just their physical symptoms. All the bodies systems are inter-related it is believed if one area is not functioning efficiently this will affect other parts of the body.


The therapy itself is based on the theory that all the organs of the body are represented on the feet. And working these with a finger and thumb pressure initiates a response throughout the body. Any congested or blocked areas that are not functioning as they should, are stimulated, thus helping the body to work in a more efficient stress free way


A treatment lasts an hour with the first treatment taking a little longer to take a detailed health history. Most people find the treatment a very pleasant experience which induces a deep state of relaxation. It is suitable for all ages from the youngest baby to the oldest adult.
