Reflexology is a natural, holistic therapy based on the discovery that there are points on the feet which correspond to organs, systems, and structures within the body. Using special pressure techniques to stimulate these points the therapist can detect imbalances in the body and work to effectively treat them. Reflexology has had great success in aiding a number of common ailments including digestive issues, insomnia, migraines, and other stress related illnesses. Reflexology is also beneficial in the last stages of pregnancy and has been known to decrease labour times. It is a relaxing treatment which treats the whole person, helps to restore balance, and bring about a deep sense of wellbeing.

So what does this mean for you? With so many demands of modern living, we often follow habitual patterns. We repeat again and again the same old reactions to life events, particularly when our buttons are pushed. This usually leads to the same old unsatisfactory outcomes. As Tony Robbins once said, “Do what you always do, and you will get what you always get.” To enhance our own wellbeing, and respond to life’s challenges in a new way, it is helpful to train our own minds to become more aware of, and to weaken, our habitual patterns.
