Reflexology in Beckenham, Bromley & Croydon
Reflexology has its roots based in ancient Egypt and works on the principle that every organ and system has a corresponding point or zone on the foot. It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that restores the body's natural balance and rhythm. The practitioner will use light pressure to massage each of the points on the toes, feet and ankles to release tension, remove energy blockages, disperse accumulations of calcium and uric acid, stimulate blood circulation and promote healing of both body and mind.
Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing holistic therapy and is suitable for all age ranges from newborns to people in their older age. Reflexology truly does allow everyone to feel the benefits of good health.
It is thought that we hold emotions in various organs and muscles in the body. For example; anxiety can often be held in the digestive system, or stress in the neck and shoulders.
