Heart & Sole Connections

Our bodies are amazingly resilient, continuously adapting to life's physical and emotional challenges. Through every minute of the day the different systems of the body communicate and work together to create the subtle adjustments that result in a health condition.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a holistic healing art. By applying stimulation to over 7,200 nerve endings and specific reflex points in the feet, reflexology helps induce a state of balance and harmony throughout the body.
Beyond relaxation, reflexology has been shown to improve circulation. This boosts the supply of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles and other tissues which, in turn speeds the elimination of waste products such as lactic acid and stress hormones. As a result, muscle tension and soreness are relieved, healing time from injuries improve, and swelling from injuries and illness are reduced. Immune functiion, skin tone, and the ability to concentrate also improves when circulation is increased.
Structural Reflexology®, developed by Geraldine Villeneuve, is the practice of integrating foot reflexology with anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology by using local and reflexive methods to release stress and compensation in the entire body.
Structural Reflexology® addresses tension sites on the feet as the product of local muscle and ligament strain while maintaining un understanding of how these sites of tension on the feet will impact the rest of the body.
Reflexology Lymph Drainage
RLD is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay, whilst working in Cancer Care. It is an award-winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body.
RLD treatments stimulates the flow of fluid (lymph) through the lymphatic system which explains the reduction of swelling.
