Benefits of Reflexology

  • Stress Reduction

When a person is stressed, the body’s defences break down and therefore become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.

  • Improved Circulation

Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body in order to provide oxygen and nutrients to all the cells, and to remove the waste products of metabolism and other toxins from the body. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows the cardiovascular vessels to improve the flow of blood.

  • Stimulated Nerve Function

By stimulating more than 7,000 nerves in the feet, reflexology encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways. It interrupts pain pathways, thereby reducing pain.

  • Improved Immune System

Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system, thereby reducing the risk of infection. It cleanses the body of toxins and impurities and also stimulates the production of endorphins, leading to an improved immune system and sense of well-being.

  • Increased Energy

Reflexology revitalises energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up energy pathways.
