About Reflexology ....
“Reflexology: Engages the parasympathetic and promotes homeostasis in the body”.
That’s the technical part!
Quite simply, reflexology is a complementary therapy that works on the feet (or hands) enabling the body to heal. Following illness, stress or injury, the body is in a state of “imbalance” and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium, or balance, and therefore encourage healing.
In reflexology, the feet are read as a "map" of the body and therefore by working the feet, the therapist can influence the whole body. Reflexology aids relaxation and elicits calm in the mind and body. It is a great complementary therapy that can help towards recovery following illness or simply a wonderful opportunity for self care and pure relaxation.
You may want to try reflexology if you experience:
* Back pain
* Sleep disorders
* Hormonal imbalances

Even, if you are in good health, reflexology is a lovely way to relax, refresh the mind and unwind.
