Frequently asked questions
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a gentle to firm massage technique on the feet to rebalance and restore wellbeing by working on the reflex points on the feet to deep relax and calm the body.
How does it work?
By working on the specific reflex points on the feet, this improves circulation and lymph flow, thereby cleanses the body of impurities and enhances the body to naturally restore to its own healthy balance. Stress, worry, tension and various health conditions depletes and blocks the flow of nutrients and prevents the optimal function of the body. Reflexology helps unblock these pathways by improving circulation and clearing imbalances.
What is it good for?
Reflexology promotes deep relaxation and stress relief and calm the mind and body. This treatment is also invigorating and energising. Reflexology is a great antidote to stresses and strains of modern living and promotes and maintains good health.
Can reflexology benefit fertility?

Is it good in pregnancy?
If pregnant, you have to be at least 13 weeks pregnant in order to have any treatment.
Reflexology reduces pregnancy related symptoms, calms and relaxes the body, and from 37 weeks pregnant, helps prepare the body for birth.
Pregnancy massage is a wonderful experience, as it helps a woman to relax and supports your body during the period of physiological changes and helps prepare the whole body for birth.
