Reflexology

The ancient art of reflexology accesses the 7000 nerve endings which are linked to every organ and system of the body. Through skillful manipulation a reflexologist can help to unblock the flow of energy in organs and rebalance entire systems.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy, that is, it is used in conjunction with conventional medicine to assist in the body’s recovery from certain diseases and illnesses. It does not diagnose or cure.
It is particularly useful for stress related conditions as it helps to discharge the negative effects of stress and stimulate the body’s own healing.
There is general acceptance that illness and disease do not occur ‘out of the blue’ nor can they be solely  attributed to a virus or bacteria. The reality is, we do not simply ‘catch the flu’ from someone else. When our immune system is depleted below the level of resistance required to successfully fight a disease then we succumb and become ill.
Reflexology is a renewal and maintenance programme for the body. It not only aids recovery but helps the body to maintain health. It is not necessary to have a ‘symptom’ to benefit from reflexology.
