Reflexology

Reflexology is based on the theory that there are invisible zones running vertically through the body, and stimulation of a particular zone by massaging the corresponding part of the foot will affect all parts of the body within that zone.  The reflexes for a particular organ or problem areas lie within one of the zones, which has a corresponding location on the foot.  This area on the foot is massaged gently using the thumbs or fingers, and in turn the organ is affected for the better.

As all parts of the body are represented on the feet, this means the whole body can be treated in one session. Alternatively the practitioner can treat similar reflexes on the hands, the face, the ears or the abdomen if, for example, the client has injured or painful feet.

CAUTION: To be on the safe side, lighter reflexology treatments or none at all should apply for those with heart disorders, acute infectious diseases, fevers, shingles, pre- and post-surgery, malignant melanoma, first trimester of pregnancy, unmedicated high blood pressure, any inflammatory condition or vascular or lymphatic origin, and for anyone on multiple medications
