Reflexology is a popular and relaxing holistic treatment performed on the feet.  It is based on the principle that there are reflex points on the top, sides and soles of the feet which are linked by energy pathways to corresponding parts of the bofy.  When a reflexologist works on the reflexes with their thumbs and fingers using specialist massage techniques it helps to correct imbalances throughout the body, and helps release blocked energy.  The body is like a complex machine in which all the parts need to be working together to maintain the balance requies for maximum effect.  If this balance is distrurbed for any reason then the component parts will function less effectively.

When a blockage occurs,caused by stress, injury or disease in one part, the rest of the body compensates and works harders to try and achieve balance.    Reflexology is particularly helpful for infertility problems, hormonal inbalances, menopause, stress related disorders and many others.
