Reflexology works on the same premise as acupuncture, aiming to smooth the flow of energy throughout the body and giving it that boost to work more efficiently. It can work very well in its own right for conditions such as anxiety, stress and insomnia and even digestive issues. It can also help to balance any hormonal issues that may impact upon menstrual cycles, fertility, maternity and menopause. Above all, it is an extremely relaxing treatment.
A mixture of massage and pressure on certain points of the feet, reflexology aims to work out any 'blockages' of energy in the body by targeting specific areas on the feet. Usually a course of three weekly treatments is recommended; it can be combined with a course of acupuncture treatments or offered on its own.
