Benefits of Reflexology
  • Stress Reduction
    When we are stressed our body's defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease.
    Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balancing itself and allowing healing energy to flow
  • Improved Immune System
    Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system thus reducing risk of infection.
    It cleanses the body of toxins and impurities, leading to an improved immune system and sense of well-being and also stimulates the production of ENDORPHINS
  • Improved Circulation
    Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells and removing the waste products of metabolism and other toxins. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows the cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.
  • Stimulated Nerve Function
    By stimulating more than 7,000 nerves in the feet, reflexology encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways. It interrupts pain pathways, reducing pain.
  • Increased Energy
    Reflexology revitalises energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up energy pathways.
