WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is an extremely effective modality that has carved an impressive niche in the field of complementary medicine.It involves a specific type of touch therapy based on the principals that there are reflex points on the feet, hands and outer ears that relate to different body organs and body systems.
The premise is that working these points will effect beneficial physiological changes to occur within the body.It is a non-invasive holistic healing technique that is both a Science and an Art. It is a science because it is based on physiological and neurological study, but it is also an art because much depends on how skillfully the therapist applies his or her knowledge. Reflexology is recognized by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

HOW DOES REFLEXOLOGY WORK?
Did you know that 75% of all illnesses are stress related?
Chemical blockages can accumulate around the nerve endings that inhibit the body's ability to send clear messages back and forth to the brain. Reflexology helps to break up those blockages by using the application of pressure from the thumb and fingers to strike reflex maps in the feet, hands and outer ears. Reflexology promotes relaxation of the central nervous system helping to reduce the effects of physical and emotional stress on the body allowing it to come back into a state of normalization and balance so that you can experience a higher quality of life and deeper state of health.
