Reflexology and VacuFlex Reflexology
One of our therapies
Reflexology is an art and a physiological and neurological study of science and is an extremely effective form of therapeutic foot massage in the world of complementary medicine The feet are a microcosm of the body.
All the organs, glands and body parts are represented by reflexes in similar arrangement on the feet. Their locations and relationships to each other on the feet follow a logical, anatomical pattern which closely resembles that of the body itself.
As a general guideline, where there is sensitivity in a reflex area that would be an indication of stress or weakness in the corresponding organ or body part. Pressure is applied to the reflex areas using specific thumb and finger techniques. This causes physiological changes to take place in the body as the body’s own healing potential is stimulated. Through relaxation, the blood vessels and by improving blood and oxygen flow through the body, circulation is greatly improved.
The treatment will also break down the congested molecules formed at the nerve endings (72,000 in each foot) and a healing process begins as improved circulation assists the body with supplying nutrients and oxygen, bringing homeostasis or a state of equilibrium or balance to the body.
A skilled reflexology treatment may take almost 45 minutes to complete. The therapist stimulates all the reflexes in a treatment specific sequence, noting any sensitivity or pain.
