Reflexology is an ancient scientific technique of applied acupressure where the practitioner focuses on specific points on the feet and some other areas in a systematic manner thereby not only relieving pain, but resulting in overall health and well-being.
From Ayurveda in ancient India, Egyptian methods as early as 2330 BC, the Rwo Shur method in China and Taiwan, and the Ingham method in America, various forms of Reflexology have been practiced by our forefathers.
Accordingly, Reflexology today has become one of the foremost complementary health treatments practised in the western world. More people and organizations are increasingly making use of Reflexologists and their skills.

Reflexology is the holistic treatment of a person by applying pressure to points on the feet or hands that correspond with organs and systems of the body. By activating these points or systems, reflexology helps maintain Homeostasis (balance) of the person which is required to support and maintain wellbeing. A Homeostasis imbalance can lead to disease or even death.
oday, reflexology has become one the most popular forms of complementary therapies practised in the western world and its benefits are recognised by medical practitioners as well as some insurance companies in Ireland.
Reflexology provides relief from many causes and symptoms:
The treatment is performed with the client lying down fully clothed except for the feet and lower legs.
The right kind of pressure to these points accelerates the process and produces a positive effect on the corresponding organs. This has a healing effect on these organs and rejuvenates them.
75% of disease is estimated to be stress related. When we are stressed, our body's defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness anddisease. Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.
Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body, carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells andremoving the waste products of metabolism and other toxins. By reducing stress and tension, reflexologyallows the cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.
Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system, thus reducing risk of infection. It cleanses the body of toxinsand impurities and also stimulates the production of endorphins, leading to an improved immune systemand sense of wellbeing.
