What is it?
Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is a technique involving the application of pressure to certain reflex areas on the feet and hands to stimulate the body. Using gentle manipulation of the foot we aim to produce an effect elsewhere in the body, and is a treatment that works to bring all of the interconnected parts of the body together in harmony for the mind and soul.
How is it performed?
The treatment begins with the therapists preparing the feet for the treatment by cleansing the area with solution. During Reflexology the therapists will use their hands to apply pressure to the feet and lower leg, focusing on pressure/reflex points on the surface of the feet. If you are a solo customer, because our treatments are done tandem, you will have two therapists (one for each foot) during the treatment. You may feel slight discomfort whilst the therapists works on an area during the treatment, but the experience should be generally relaxing.
What are the benefits?
The goal of reflexology is to be a less complicated approach to wellbeing. Reflexology is a treatment which is tailored to you as a whole, to help the body to restore its balance naturally. And because it requires only the feet (and ankles) to be exposed, it is a lot more flexible for those that have space constraints. The best way to see the benefits are to try it out, some people respond well to reflexology and swear by it, others can take it or leave it.
Is it for me?
Reflexology really is the best kind of treatment for those short on time and space. Customers who may not have enough space for a full bed to be set up (eg a small flat or small room at work) will benefit greatly from this treatment
