Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy that promotes deep relaxation and wellbeing. Reducing stress in people's lives can be essential in optimising good health and building resilience.
It's a touch therapy based on the theory that different pressure points on the feet, hands or ears, correspond with areas of the body, and reflexologists work these points to rebalance the body's energy.
Reflexology can be used safely alongside standard healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
Reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe or cure. Instead, it is a complementary therapy that works alongside any other medical treatment.
