Reflexology – is a pressure therapy whereby pressure is applied to the feet or hands. All of the internal body structures and organs are mapped in miniature on the hands and feet. The body is divided up into energy zones or pathways. When the energy flow is blocked by congestion, disorder or even disease can occur. When the therapist treats a reflex point, the main aim is to enhance the energy flow encouraging the body to heal itself and promoting the systems of the body to work today. It is a complementary treatment, which dates back to ancient times, originating in China and Egypt
"Pain is inevitible, suffering is optional" Buddha
