Foot reflexology is the practice of stimulating areas of the feet that correspond to parts of the body with specific hand, thumb and finger techniques. This stimulation is believed to have a positive effect on a person’s health and well-being. It is not massage. We know that foot reflexology is very relaxing, and periods of relaxation are important in our lives.Foot reflexology will help enhance over-all health and well-being.
What can Foot Reflexology do for me?
Foot reflexology is relaxing. When you relax, your breathing and thinking slows, which helps to improve circulation, and allows your body to use more oxygen. When you are relaxed, endorphins (the body’s painkillers) get to where they’re needed.

Ear Reflexology or Auricular Therapy is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Like hand reflexology, ear reflexology can be applied quickly and easily in situations where foot reflexology may not be suitable, or if health conditions do not permit it.
Each ear contains a complete reflex map of the body, rich with nerve endings and multiple connectors to the central nervous system. Ear Reflexology is based on zones and points in the ears which relate to energy centers known as meridian
