This therapy involves massage of the reflex areas of the feet. The feet are considered to be a map of the body mirroring its vital organs and structure. By stimulating these reflex points on the feet we can improve circulation, decrease tension and eliminate toxins encouraging the body to function correctly. This treatment is designed to boost energy levels, enhance emotional and spiritual well being and can be used to assist many physical problems i.e. arthritis, digestive problems, back pain, general fatigue and menstrual irregularities. Stress related problems may also be alleviated for example, migraines, tension, high blood pressure etc.
