What is Reflexology?
"The art of reflexology is an ancient therapy that has been practiced for over 5000 years and was introduced to the western world over 100 years ago. Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary therapy which is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears, correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists believe that working these points or areas aids relaxation and helps improve wellbeing.
With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to recognise the detrimental effect that this can have and to take action to address their own healthcare needs; as such, reflexology could be one of the ways you might employ to ease the stresses of modern life.
Improved wellbeing is much more than simply the absence of illness; it also includes an improved frame of mind, better relationships with those around you and increased happiness".
