Reflexology is a focussed pressure technique, usually directed at the feet or hands. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflexes on different parts of the body which correspond to and are relative to all parts, glands and organs.



Zone Theory is the foundation of Foot Reflexology and an understanding of the zones as a system for organising relationships between various parts, glands and organs of the body and the reflexes are essential to reflexology and its applications.









The benefits of Reflexology are:


  • Relaxation with the removal of stress


  • Enhanced circulation


  • Assists the body to normalize metabolisms naturally


  • Complements other healing modalities


When the reflexes are stimulated, the body’s natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones.


Pressure applied to any part of a zone will affect the entire zone and can be stimulated by working any reflex in that same zone.


Manipulating specific reflexes removes stress, activating a parasympathetic (nervous system) response in the body to enable the blockages to be released by a physiological change in the body. With stress removed and circulation enhanced, the body is allowed to return to a normal state.


Reflexology sessions are suitable for people of all ages, from the new-born to the elderly, for a general tune-up or for an unhealthy body.


The vast majority of people usually realise the benefits of reducing stress which in turn minimises physical symptoms. Reflexology in conjunction with other forms of therapies complements ongoing medical treatments.


The therapeutic intervention in a session is limited to “working the reflexes” and assessing a “tender reflex”.


Using a firm pressure, the reflexes are worked according to the client’s requirements. Stress removal is the first priority followed by enhancing circulation.
