The ancient art of reflexology
The concept of this ancient art is that the foot reflects the body. Reflex points in the feet reflect the body as a whole. Through skilful, yet gentle manipulation of these reflex points, the corresponding systems and organs of the body can be prompted to release tension and toxins and activate healing. The pressure is gentle but firm, not at all ticklish and induces deep relaxation and relieves stress through the para sympathetic nervous system.
Reflexology’s history goes back 5000 years in China and Ancient Egypt, where hieroglyphics depict the ‘physician’ administering reflexology to the Pharaoh – a practice worthy of the highest office.

Your reflexology options
Reflexology for relaxation
With our ‘always on’ lifestyles, it is important to build in some form of process to unplug from the pressures of life. Reflexology is a safe, natural and exceptionally relaxing therapy. By regularly resetting ourselves we can enjoy improved mood and concentration, reduced anxiety, better sleep and overall increased sense of wellbeing.
Reflexology during pregnancy
Pregnancy is a truly wonderful phase in life where the mother nurtures her growing offspring 24 hours per day. Reflexology during pregnancy is a natural, holistic, safe way for the mother to experience nurturing herself and replenish her energies. Reflexology for birth preparation, ideally starting at week 32, can help reduce the need for medical interventions by up to 70% and reduce labour time, typically to between 4 & 6 hours. Occasional treatments or a course for birth preparation reflexology are available (early booking is recommended) just click to book.
