It is based on a theory that the organs, nerves and glands and other parts of the body are connected to reflex areas or reflex points in your feet, hands or face.
This holistic treatment may help to facilitate more vital energy, boost immune system, reduction of symptoms of illnesses such as digestive problems, back pain, migraines and headaches, sleep disorders and hormonal imbalances. It is excellent for women with subfertility and pregnant women.
Reflexology may be as effective as painkillers, according to a small study carried out by the University of Portsmouth. Researchers have found that people felt about 40 per cent less pain, and were able to stand pain for about 45 per cent longer, when they used reflexology as a method of pain relief.
This is the first time this widely used therapy has been scientifically tested as a treatment for acute pain, meaning it may be used to complement conventional drug therapy in the treatment of conditions associated with pain such as osteoarthritis, backache and cancers.

REFLEXOLOGY LYMPH DRAINAGE
It is a powerful yet gentle technique that can be used with very little restrictions, for instance to support people who are at risk of developing swelling post operations. Many people are recommended Manual Lymph Drainage but this technique can not be applied to areas operated on due to pain or tenderness. RLD is performed on feet or hands and work on the whole lymphatic system hence it can be applied without causing discomfort to area that were operated on (providing its not feet or hands).
REFLEXOLOGY FOR BABIES, CHILDREN and TEENS
Reflexology is a safe and suitable holistic therapy from birth. I have experience working with babies as well as children and teenagers. They often find reflexology calming and relaxing. Babies may benefit from better sleep and reduction in colic symptom and other digestive issues.
Children and teenagers might benefit at times of exam stress, hormonal imbalance, low mood, depression adn anxiety.
Children’s reflexology is shorter 20 - 30 mins. Child will always need to be accompanied by an adult. Both feet and facial reflexology are suitable and best treatment will be recommended during the consultation.
