Clinical Reflexology is so much more than a foot massage, it is a healing technique and an art form that “creates wellness”.
Reflexology is a complimentary healing system that uses hand applied pressure to the feet. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that are a reflection of the body systems. By applying the correct type of pressure to these points body systems may be stimulated or relaxed as appropriate so that changes may occur in the body.
Foot Tapping Reflexology is an incredible development, helping the mental, physical and energy bodies.
FTR incorporates the theories of other energy therapies such as EFT (emotional freedom technique) and utilizes deep vibration in combination with reflexology. It works at a deeper level and can be used to clear the emotional issue that can lead to physical ailments without having to discuss or disclose the emotional issues. Positivity replaces negativity.

Reflexology has been used for thousands of years and is an acceptable form of treatment for many ailments and can also be used alongside modern medicine. Reflexology can be traced back to 4000 B.C. in China, Egypt and North American Indian tribes. The oldest evidence of reflexology is in the tomb of the physician of Ankmahor in Saqqara, Egypt, carvings show foot massage treatments taking place, with the inscription “do not let it be painful”.
BENEFITS OF TREATMENT
These treatments are non-invasive and require no drugs. They are holistic in that they treat the whole body and mind. Often a pain may be felt in one area of the body, but its source or trigger can be elsewhere. By treating the whole body, blockages can be released leading to a smoother functioning body .
Reflexology may be helpful in the following areas:
•Stress related conditions
•Muscular and joint pain
•Sport injuries, maintaining peak fitness
•Emotional Issues, postnatal depression, PTSD, anxiety
Reflexology is NOT an alternative to "orthodox" medicine, but "complementary" to it.
People of any age can derive positive benefits from it. There are few limitations. Some medical conditions may require the co-operation of the general practitioner.
