What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary therapy, developed from the ancient belief that there are reflex points on the feet which correspond to every part of the body, connected by energy pathways. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, and helps to restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body. It is deeply relaxing, relieves tension, aids sleep and improves your overall sense of wellbeing.
Reflexologists believe that sensitivity in any of the reflex points on the feet or hands is a reflection of an energy imbalance in the corresponding part of the body. By working gently on these reflex points we aim to restore balance to the body and trigger the healing potential within you.
Reflexology works with you as a whole person, rather than with symptoms alone. It may help bring relief from a wide range of ailments, but whatever your condition, the aim is to encourage your body's own natural ability to heal itself.
Reflexology is suitable for people of all ages.

Maternity reflexology can be of great support to women throughout pregnancy to promote general wellbeing. In the first trimester, there are huge changes in hormone levels which can cause stress and so called minor disorders of pregnancy. Reflexology can help alleviate these. During the second trimester, most of the discomforts have disappeared though there may be sleep and anxiety issues. During the third trimester, weekly treatments can help prepare for labour and delivery. Studies have shown that reflexology can reduce the length and decrease the pain during labour.
