What is reflexology massage?

Foot reflexology is a wholistic-noninvasive therapy which complements other therapies and modern medicine. It is a gentle but effective way of relaxing, balancing, revitalizing and boosting your entire body on a mental, emotional and physical level. A maternity reflexology session involves a specific thumb and finger technique in which pressure, movement and stretching are applied to reflex points located on the mother's feet. It works on the principle that there are reflex points in your feet which correspond to your entire body. By applying pressure to these points, stress is reduced, the body’s systems are balanced and detoxified and the body’s innate healing ability is stimulated resulting in better health and wellbeing.
