The origins of Reflexology clearly reach back to ancient Egypt. Evidence is found in inscriptions found in the physician’s tomb at Saqqara in Egypt.
Reflexology treatment believes that there is a connection between specific areas on the hand, feet or ear and the rest of the body. By putting pressure on particular points in the foot, hand or ear, a correspondent area in the body is stimulated and so healing is facilitated.
Foot reflexology is probably the most known reflexology treatment. The reflexologist will massage, rub and press your feet whilst you lie on a chair. Foot reflexology is normally painless although sometimes some soreness might be felt in correspondence of a related unbalanced part of the body. Please check our free reflexology chart here.

Some people recognise hand reflexology as reflexology therapy. The principles are the same as foot reflexology, clearly the related pressure points are in your thumbs, palm, fingers, back and even side of the hand.
Reflexology may have the following benefits:
It helps regaining body balance
It helps removing blockages
It helps recovering quicker from injuries
It helps circulation, digestion, breathing
It helps relief from congestion

The reflexology massage session could last anything between 1 to 1.5 hours, during which you would lie either on a professional massage couch or on anything which you consider comfortable.
The use of massage oil is not essential for this treatment as often cream or talk are used. However the benefits of reflexology massage are further enhanced using aromatherapy oils.
Price is £75/h, and from only £55/h with the priviledge card. Call us for more info.
A surcharge might also apply for hotel visits.
Individuals who suffer from fever, nausea, cancer, thrombosis and some other major illnesses should refrain from any massage.
