Reflexology works on specific points on the feet which link to other parts of the body and can bring relief to a wide range of conditions. This may include stress, anxiety, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, sciatica, depression and back pain. Reflexology is suitable for all ages and can be effective during pregnancy and when trying to conceive.
Reflexology improves circulation and aids the elimination of the body's cellular waste and encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace. Muscles held in a state of tension as a protective device begin to relax. Digestive juices begin to flow more easily, breathing becomes deeper and the circulation of blood and lymph improves. Reflexology is said to 'normalise' bodily functions, inducing a state of homeostasis.
