What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that can be traced back many thousands of years to ancient China and Egypt. 


All the organs and systems of the body can be mapped on to points on the feet, hands, or face. By using gentle pressure on these points, the body can be brought back into natural balance. A reflexology treatment brings about relaxation, relieves tension, and helps us achieve wellbeing.


Reflexology looks at the person as a whole. It cannot diagnose, but by relieving stress, which is the underlying cause of many illnesses in today's fast-paced world, and by balancing the body, it may help many different conditions, improving general health.


Reflexology may support you if you have:


  • Stress-related conditions

  • Insomnia

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Joint and muscle aches and pains, including fibromyalgia

  • Anxiety

  • Depression 

  • Fatigue, including CFS/ME

  • Immune disorders, such as asthma, eczema, hay fever

  • Digestive disorders, such as IBS, colitis

  • Hormonal imbalances, such as PMS, menopause symptoms,
    endometriosis, PCOS

  • Lymphoedema

  • and much, much more...

Will reflexology work for me?

Why not try it and see! Sometimes the effects are quick and dramatic, more often they are subtle, but reflexology can be used to help support almost anyone through an illness. It may also be used to maintain well being.

You may not think reflexology is doing very much for you. Some people stop having treatments because they don't think it works. Most of them come back after a month or so when they realise they don't feel as well as before!

The best way to find out if it will help you is to try it!

I never really understood the ethos behind reflexology and always viewed it as a luxury, but after a few sessions with Nicki I quickly became a regular. It has helped with my back pain, my general well being and is 1 hour in the week where I can truly relax. Definitely more of a necessity than luxury.
