Reflexology – what is it?

Is a form of treatment focussing on the feet, which involves application of pressure to the feet (or hands) on specific areas. These areas reflect different parts of the body, much like a mirror. Working on these areas in the feet or hands can have a beneficial change on other parts of the body. There are over 7000 nerve endings in the foot and when pressure is applied to certain points on the feet it is said to stimulate the movement of energy along the nerve channels encouraging the body’s own natural ability to heal and restore homoeostasis (balance).
