Reflexology in Wokingham
What is reflexology?
Reflexology treatment is more than just a foot massage. It is a complementary therapy that uses pressure on certain points on the sole of the foot which correspond to areas of the body, with or without the use of oil. By stimulating these points, it helps to restore balance and general health to the person.
It is suitable for all ages, and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. Reflexology can bring soothing stress relief and relaxation to the mind, body and spirit. The treatment can be pleasurable and extremely relaxing to receive, as well as invigorating and energising.
Reflexology is very relaxing and great for releasing stress and tension. Its gentle and non-invasive nature makes it particularly valuable for children, pregnant women and people recovering from illnesses, operations and fractures. It has also shown to be hugely effective in aiding with infertility.
It is believed to originate from ancient Egypt and China. Later the foot maps were identified by Eunice D. Ingham, which are still used today.

- Digestive disorders including IBS and constipation

- Insomnia and disturbed sleep

After this the fully qualified complementary therapist will ask you to remove any footwear that you have on.
