Your feet do more than just carry you through life – they contain a map of your body on their soles.

Reflexology is a non-invasive, deeply relaxing treatment which has been around for thousands of years.  It is based on the principle that there are zones and reflexes on the feet which correcspond to all parts, glands, and oragans of the entire body.  When those relexes are stimulated, the body’s natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones.  Reflexology is known to reduce stress, increase blood circulation, promote relaxation, and bring about balances.  By promoting relaxation, Reflexology allows the body to function more efficiently and promotes self-healing.

Reflexology is beneficial for people of all ages, from the very young to the very old.
