This ancient therapy works on the principle that nerve endings on the feet and hands (reflex areas) correspond to all parts of the body. Stimulating these points can have a positive effect on the corresponding parts of the body and therefore encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance.
Some doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise reflexology as a well-established, respected and effective therapy. Reflexology helps to improve physical problems and balance the mind and emotions, and is an excellent preventative treatment.
Reflexology is often combined with massage.
