Reflexology is a treatment based on the principle of all parts of the body being reflected in specific areas on the feet and hands. The reflexes on the feet and hands are a map of the whole body, and massage and pressure to all these reflex points provides a route to treating all parts of the body.
Treatment is most often given to the feet and is very relaxing and enjoyable . Socks and shoes are removed and the patient usually sits comfortably on a therapy couch for the treatment. Each reflexology appointment usually lasts approximately one hour.
