Reflexology works with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to different parts of the body. It is a unique method, including both massage and pressure points, usually performed on the feet. Stimulating these reflex points can then help to restore the body to its natural and harmonious state. This is an ancient and still very popular treatment and has been practiced for over 4,000 years in countries such as Egypt, China, Japan, Greece and India. Cleopatra seemed to be one of the many enjoying this treatment and it was recorded that Mark Anthony even massaged her feet at dinner parties. It is perceived by many as a very relaxing treatment and this comes as no surprise considering there are more than 7000 nerves to be stimulated. Reflexology can boost a sluggish circulation and is useful for treating stress, anxiety, back pain, migraine, poor digestion, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), respiratory problems, asthma, headaches, bladder problems, menopausal symptoms and period pain.
