What Is Clinical Reflexology?
safe, non-invasive complementary therapy
Clinical Reflexology is a safe, non-invasive complementary therapy that is based on the theory that different points or reflexes on the feet, lower leg, hands and ears link to every part of the body. While working on the feet a Reflexologist can stimulate over 7,000 nerves!
By applying gentle pressure and stimulating these reflexes it encourages the body to go into a deep state of relaxation which in turn encourages the body’s own natural ability to heal itself.
Each part of the body sends messages back and forth along neural pathways. If these pathways become blocked it may lead to stress and illness. Stimulating these reflex points can lead to improved circulation, elimination of toxins and decreased tension and anxiety encouraging the body to re-balance itself towards optimum health.
A reflexology treatment is the perfect way to regain balance, harmony and and an overall sense of well-being in mind, body and spirit.

Reflexology is an ancient therapy that has been practised for over 5000 years. It was introduced to the Western world by Eunice Ingham in the 1930s. She used ‘zone therapy’ which showed that the feet were a mirror image of the body.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy which can work very well alongside conventional medicine to provide optimal health.
We acknowledge that every person is unique and some people find other things improve as well – the only way to know if reflexology will help you is to try it!
Reflexology should never be used in place of seeking medical advice and is not a substitute for medical treatment. If you have any health concerns or illness you should always consult your doctor. A reflexologist does not diagnose, cure or prescribe.
