What does reflexology do?
Reflexology has proven to be extremely effective in relief from:

How does it work?
The reflexologies works by stimulating reflex points in the feet. This creates a healing response the rest of the body, stimulating the bodys own natural healing system and returning the body to equilibrium.
You will be amazed at what the feet tell you about the state of various parts of your body. While the reflexologist is not allowed to diagnose, he is able to identify and work on problem areas during the treatment.
Can Reflexology do any harm?
No Reflexology cannot harm you.
BUT, as with several other natural therapies like homeopathy and acupuncture, there is often a worsening of symptoms before they get better, after a reflexology session, . The reason for this is that reflexology is creating a reaction within your own body which leads to the healing that takes place. It is a kind of a jump start of your bodies own healing system.
How many sessions should you do?
- How many session you do will depend on what your purpose is for the treatment. As a general relaxation and stress relief therapy, you can use sessions individually as you desire.

- If you are wanting work on a particular illness, we recommend 8-10 sessions done once weekly
