Reflexology offers psychological and physical benefits
Reflexology is a holistic therapy based on a simple principle: each aspect of life affects our well-being. The aim of reflexology is to restore equilibrium to your body as a whole and to stimulate its self-healing capacity.

The benefits of reflexology, a technique which works on the assumption the foot is a “map”, are many and work at different levels. Each point on your foot is linked to an internal organ and, with the proper massage and stimulation, reflexology can bring benefits to the whole body. Reflexology operates on mental, emotional and physical planes. Moreover, reflexology massages induce the body to produce significant amounts of endorphins, substances which can raise your pain threshold and generate a feeling of wellbeing. As a result, improvements occur in blood circulation, lymphatic function and in energy levels, the effects of which stimulate or modulate the function of all the organs in your body.
Even people suffering from emotional and mental health problems can benefit greatly from reflexology. When the body and its functions are in balance, both the psyche and emotions can achieve a state of well-being which reduces feelings of anxiety and stress.
