Reflexology is a specific pressure technique applied to the feet or hands where all the internal body structures and organs are mapped or mirrored in miniature. The ancient art of reflexology accesses these nerve endings which are linked to every organ and system of the body. Through skilful manipulation a reflexologist can help to unblock the flow of energy in organs and rebalance entire systems. It is a simple non-invasive treatment, which aims to enhance the energy flow and thus essentially work the entire body and all its systems encouraging the body to restore itself and work again in unison.
