Reflexology can be used to reduce the effects of stress related conditions by calming the nervous system and bringing the body into balance. It is based on the principle that reflex points on the feet and hands are linked by energy pathways to corresponding parts of the body. Stress, illness and injury can block these pathways and by stimulating with specific finger and thumb massage techniques, the movement of energy can help to unblock these pathways. It is a non evasive therapy and is suitable for all ages, both sexes and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. Doctors and healthcare professionals recognise reflexology as a well established, respected and effective therapy.
Reflexology is used to aid healing to the whole person and not just the prevailing symptoms.
A consultation form will be filled out on the initial treatment and each course of treatments works on an individual basis, with feedback and evaluation of effectiveness of treatment.
Hand reflexology works in the same way as foot reflexology and is popular with people who work with their hands, those who do not like their feet to be touched, the elderly, the chronically ill and those who use computers and hand held gadgets.

“I have very much enjoyed my reflexology treatments over the last few weeks. I feel that they have helped with my insomnia and I seem to have had fewer headaches since having treatment. Wendy has been very professional and I felt completely relaxed and impressed with the way she picked up on other ailments, including a chest infection.
After treatments my feet feel tingly and very relieved and I do feel generally calmer”.

“I have been suffering with glandular fever for a few months now. Reflexology has helped a great deal. I barely have any sore throats now and I feel relaxed and sleepy after my treatments. I love having reflexology”.
