What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive healing method based on the principle that there are reflexes mapped in the body via the hands, feet and ears, which correspond to every part, gland, and organ within the body. Through application of pressure or palpation on these reflexes, reflexology relieves symptoms of tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of related areas of the body.
Some benefits to active the body's own healing system in helping to prevent ill health are: 1. Relaxes and releases symptoms of tension in muscles; 2. Circulation is improved thereby achieving homeostasis; and 3. Treatment helps the body to normalize itself naturally, without adverse side effects.
Disclaimer: Reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe or treat for conditions. Reflexology is not a substitute for a medical treatment, but is a complimentary treatment to most types of therapy.
A 24 hrs notice is required to reschedule or cancellation before your appointment time either by email or text.
**Please note a cancellation fee may be charged to your account, and we will ask for future appointments be pre-paid before time of booking.
