Reflexology works on the principle that every organ and system of the body has a corresponding point or zone in the feet. The pressure is applied to each pressure point in the toes, feet and ankles to release tension, remove blockages and disperse accumulation of calcium and uric acid. It also stimulates blood circulation and promotes healing of both physical and mental disorders, including skin, respiratory conditions, migraine, PMS and stress.
Reflexology can help with fertility, pregnancy and postnatal discomforts, ease pain and aid progress in labour. Regular pregnancy reflexology has been shown to reduce stress hormones and facilitate an easier birth.
