Reflexology

Reflexology is based on the idea that each part of the body is directly linked to a specific point on the hands or feet. During therapy, these points are stimulated to rebalance your system and help treat a range of disorders. As the treatment is gentle, safe, and non-invasive, you can relax while it's going on. It's especially effective for back, neck and shoulder problems, rheumatic pain, headaches, stress and anxiety.
