ANTONIA MORRIS REFLEXOLOGY
Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive holistic therapy where gentle pressure is applied to areas of the feet (or hands), with the aim of bringing about deep relaxation, stimulating the body’s own healing processes and helping it to return to a state of balance and wellbeing. This therapy is now being integrated into traditional health care, with 80% of palliative care units employing a reflexologist.
Reflexes relate to organs and systems within the body. Stimulating reflex areas promotes deep relaxation and reduces the effects of stress on organs, systems within the body and the individual as a whole. It also enables the body to restore its own healthy balance and allows it to heal.
