Our bodies are equipped with wonderful self-healing facilities, but these often fail to work properly because the vital energy pathways are blocked due to degeneration and the stresses and strain of life. Reflexology redresses that situation by reducing stress, accelerating the repair work done by the body and boosting the immune system. The theory behind reflexology is that the tension, congestion and possible disease in the body are mirrored in the feet as there are over 7000 nerve ending in each foot. Despite its effectiveness at treating a vast range of illnesses and injuries, its aim is to produce a state of relaxation and balance within the body.
