Discovering the wonders of reflexology

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a gentle, non-intrusive complementary therapy that encourages the body to work naturally to restore and maintain its own healthy balance. A reflexologist works on points on the feet or hands, but it may also be performed on the ears and face. To find out what a reflexologist is feeling for in your feet visit the interactive foot map

How may reflexology help me?

Reflexology may also help with the management of a number of health related matters such as: relieve of tension, stress and anxiety, pain management and injury recovery, improving mood and as an aid to relaxation and sleep.
