Holistic Therapy

Reflexology is a holistic healing therapy dating back 5,000 years, originated from the Chinese and Egyptians with its origins in acupuncture and is based on the principle that meridian lines divide the body into energy zones and that exerting slight pressure on these reflex points helps alleviate congestion that causes ailments within the body.

Research has shown positive results for many disorders such as

  • neck and back problems
  • pain management
  • hormonal rebalances
  • neurological disorders
  • Musculo- skeletal issues
  • digestive problems
  • stress and insomnia
  • headaches
  • maternity and fertility, helping with specific ailments of pelvic girdle pain, morning sickness and preparing the body for birth.  Woman’s health including peri-menopause and menopausal symptoms are eased, and at times alleviated with reflexology.

Studies have also shown that Reflexology can ease side effects of chemotherapy and hormonal therapy treatments.
