Reflexology at New Body Barn, Devizes
Reflexology was used by the Chinese more than 5000 years ago in their pressure therapies and can be dated back to 2000BC in Mediterranean cultures.
It is a popular and relaxing holistic treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops and sides of the feet are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. In this way the feet can be seen as a 'map' of the body.
Reflexology stimulates reflexes on the feet to provoke beneficial effects on body parts, organs and generates balance. It has been known to increase mobility, flexibility and energy.
Summer is coming – it’s time to show off your feet!
Your feet have been wrapped up in socks and boots for months and now the days are getting warmer, it’s time to start showing them off in strappy sandals and flip flops.
A reflexology session will help rejuvenate your neglected toes and soles by speeding up the body’s natural healing process which can help reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and disperse fluid retention. Leaving you and your feet in tip top condition for those long summer days.
