A natural therapy
Reflexology is a natural, holistic therapy that is based on the discovery that there are reflex points on the feet which correspond to organs, systems and structures throughout the body. When a reflex point is stimulated on the feet it brings about a response in the corresponding organ or area.
By using special pressure to stimulate points on the feet, imbalances within organs, tissues and systems of the body can be detected and effectively treated to restore balance and well-being.

Reflexology uses only human therapeutic touch and interaction, and works with the body’s innate and natural healing processes.
