Reflexology

Costs - Adults - £45 - Children £25


Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet correspond with different areas of the body. It works on the principle that the foot is a complete map of the body and that by applying pressure to reflex points on the feet the whole body can be influenced. There are also reflex points on the lower leg, hands, face and ears. The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally.

Often, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel more relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of well-being improving. 

The therapist will use their hands to apply pressure to the feet. The patient may feel areas of transient discomfort during treatment but generally the experience should be relaxing.

Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, this therapy was not introduced to the west until Dr William H Fizgerald MD developed Zone Therapy in 1913.  He believed that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas of the body within the same zone.

In the 1930’s Eunice Ingham (1889-1974) a masseuse and physiotherapist further developed this Zone Theory into what is known as Reflexology. Her opinion was that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.

Reflexologists work holistically with their patients and aim to work alongside all allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their patients.
