Useful Resources » Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient form of therapy practised as a treatment in alternative medicine.

It functions in accordance with the principle that there are areas on the feet and hands which correspond to the major glands and organs of the body.

It works by applying pressure to a specific area of the foot to produce an effect on the corresponding area of the body.


Reflexology can be more relaxing than a general body massage. Stress-related conditions can include:

  • General headaches
  • Colds and flu
  • Neck and shoulder tension


One of the symptoms of stress is a decrease in the rate of blood circulation.
Improving the circulation by reflexology allows the body to receive the nutrients carried in the blood.
Also, waste products are eliminated more effectively.


Reflexology can help increase energy levels both immediately after the treatment and for several days after.
