Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them creates real benefits for the person's health.
The Chinese believe that reflexology stimulates the body into healing itself by improving circulation, reducing stress, pain and restoring natural balance. A therapist may massage your big toe and ankle to calm your endocrine and reproductive system, helping relieve PMS or menopausal symptoms.
How long does a session take?
A full session means working all areas of both feet. This can vary from 30-60 minutes depending on the style of Reflexology practised and wellness level of client.
Reflexology is generally recommended at least once a week or at once every two weeks for 3-6 sessions.
