How does reflexology work?
Reflexology therapies use a map of the body projected onto another part of the body.
Although these somatopic representations vary, reflexology therapies are based on the principle that by working on the projection, electrical signals are transmitted to the corresponding body part (or system) thereby eliciting the healing response.
Reflexology is an active and continually evolving therapeutic practice . In recent years, traditional reflexology has also branched into other effective therapeutic expressions to, again, improve the health and wellness of clients. And, within all types of reflexology, there are therapists who specialize in different protocols.

How Can Reflexology Help You?
The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of "imbalance" and vital body systems can be blocked, preventing the body from functioning optimally.
Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body's natural balance and facilitate healing.
For each person, the application and the effect of therapy is unique.
Sensitive, trained hands can detect any tiny deposits and imbalances and by working on these points,
the Reflexology Therapist can release these blockages.
