Foot Reflexology

Foot Reflexology is a gentle, natural, non-invasive ancient and scientific healing art, which is based on the idea that there are specific areas in the feet which correspond to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body. The physical act of applying pressure to these reflex points (nerve endings) by using specific thumb techniques results in stress reduction, which promotes positive physiological changes in other areas of the body.


Foot Reflexologists utilize the same energetic pathways in the body known as meridians which are recognized in acupuncture. The term meridian describes the overall energy distribution system of Chinese Medicine and helps us to understand how basic substances of the body (Qi, blood, and body fluids) permeate the whole body. Meridians are where vital energy is said to flow. There are twelve main meridians, or pathways associated with specific organs.

Beyond relaxation, reflexology has been shown to:

  • Relieve stress
  • Reduce tension and tightness
  • Promote balance in the body
  • Improve nerve functioning
  • Improve circulation / blood supply
  • Improve lymph drainage
  • Release toxins and impurities
  • Rejuvenate tired tissues / cells
  • Provide grounding
  • Help to restore a proper fluid balance in the tissues
  • Build up immunity and resistance to disease
  • Clear emotional debris
  • Create an overall sense of well-being
  • Releases oxytocin, the feel good hormone, in the brain
