We Are Your Trusted Reflexology Experts

Reflexology, also called zone therapy is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears. These reflexes correspond to every inner part, gland and organ of the body. Reflexology takes a holistic approach to wellness and believes that everything in the body is interconnected.

When we have a cramped foot or a sore wrist, it’s easy to think these are minor and naturally occurring issues. But sometimes it can be the sign of a greater bodily imbalance. A cramp in your hand could mean an imbalance in your thyroid, a pain in your foot or an issue with your lungs.

Although it might sound impossible, reflexology works under the belief that all aspects of the body can be affected through these zones in your body, and by massaging them while applying pressure your body can help restore the balance.

How Does Reflexology Work?

Reflexologists use the application of pressure on these reflexes to relieve tension, improve circulation and help promote the natural function of the related areas of the body. Unlike certain forms of massage therapy which rely on the use of tools, creams, oils, and other equipment, reflexology uses only pressure and friction to encourage well-being and balance.

Reflexology aims to improve the function of the body through a homeopathic process. This form of health service also uses the logic that because everything is interconnected it’s possible to relieve internal pain through external means.

Reflexology can improve your body by helping to both relax and focus your energy. Through the manipulation of your hands, ears, and feet our reflexologists can help alleviate some of the deep-rooted issues of chronic pain by bringing your whole body into balance.

Although reflexology is an alternate healing practice, it’s still used by professionals all over the world. Chiropractors, physical therapists, and registered massage therapists all rely on techniques and principles of reflexology to help their clients to the best of their abilities.

Some of the benefits of reflexology include:

• Relaxes you
• Reduces anxiety
• Reduces depression
• Helps you find balance
• Helps alleviate pain
• Improves sleep

Reflexology in conjunction with herbology, as well as a healthy diet, can help you bring balance to both your body and your life.
