WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is a complementary therapy which works with the body’s own healing and balancing processes. It can help to release tension and promote relaxation.
Reflexology has been practised for thousands of years in the Far East – Egypt, India and China. It was bought to the West in the 1920s. It is based on a theory that all systems and organs of the body are mirrored or reflected in smaller peripheral areas, for example the feet, hands, ears and face.
The reflexologist ‘works’ the reflected areas with their sensitive fingers, aiming to bring the body back into balance and helping the body to work as well as it can. Reflexology works on an individual basis. The reflexologist provides professional facilitation of your body’s own potential for well-being.
HOW DOES IT FEEL?
During a reflexology treatment Maggie will apply pressure to different reflex points on your feet or hands. These correspond to areas and organs within the body. Sometimes areas on the feet can be tender or feel ‘lumpy’ or ‘crunchy’. I will spend time gently working on these. Each hour long treatment ends with a relaxing foot massage.
