Reflexology is carried out our relaxing salon based in Newbury. The basic principle of reflexology is that it relates to reflex areas in the feet that mirror the organs, glands and other parts of the body. Modern reflexology is based on the theory that the body’s energy pathways begin in the feet and any blockages can cause ill health and disease.
Reflexology helps to relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life as it improves circulation and revitalises the body’s energy therefore balancing the whole body, clearing out toxins within the body and encouraging the release of endorphins. Reflexology simulates over 7,000 nerves in the body and promotes homeostasis the body’s natural way of bringing the body back into balance and refreshing all the bodily systems.
It is quite common to fall asleep during a Reflexology treatment and this ‘nap’ can be more beneficial than having a full night’s sleep.
Reflexology works by applying firm pressure on the feet or hands activating the healing powers within the body, revitalising the body and providing the client with the energy to carry on with their daily life feeling more relaxed.
