Holistic Health is a philosophy of healthcare that encompasses the body, mind, and spirit connection of one’s being. The three are closely interconnected and equally important to the health and wellbeing of an individual.

There are many ways in which to maintain good holistic health, having a good understanding of the needs of your body physically, emotionally and spiritually. Many alternative therapies offer techniques to develop a holistic understanding of your body including yoga, meditation and reflexology.

I am a reflexologist and reflexology is a non invasive and a popular alternative therapy. Most commonly, the feet are used as the area to be treated as the feet contain many reflex areas corresponding to all the parts of the body.

Reflexology is a holistic healing form working reflex points in the feet. Reflex points correspond to all the bodies systems and helps achieve and maintain homeostasis (balance). When the body is under a high level of stress, it holds onto toxins that create illness or anxiety being unable to perform our daily tasks with focused concentration. Being in the state of physical relaxation we are able to release toxins, calm our minds and change our attitudes as well as release our pain and restore our energy.

The theory is that reflexology helps the body to maintain its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.

Reflexology promotes relaxation, improves circulation, reduces pain, soothes tired feet, and encourages overall healing and well being. The benefits of Reflexology also include the reduction of stress levels and tension, it improves circulation, will assist the body in eliminating toxins, helps to relieve pain, normalises and balances the whole of the body and revitalises energy. Reflexology will therefore help with Migraines /Tension Headaches Sinus Problems, Hormonal Imbalances including PMS, Digestive Problems, Circulatory Problems, Back Problems, Tension & Stress Related Conditions, Arthritis and Insomnia to name a few.
