Natural & Complementary Therapies, Cyprus
Reflexology was used in Ancient
Egyptian times, as this oldest pictorial evidence suggests.
It is based on the concept that the health and well-being of your whole
body is reflected in your feet (and hands), and by using controlled
gentle finger pressure working over the whole foot (or hand), reflexology
activates your nervous system, as all your nerve endings, approx. 7000,
end there. Small sand-like deposits, called crystals, that impede the
flow of energy within the body, are broken down. The treatment is relaxing,
yet revitalizing, but most important of all it re-balances all body
systems. This achieves physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Suitable for all ages including
babies, children, and the elderly. Ideal for those who are wheelchair-bound
• Improves circulation and bowel function
• Helps promote recovery from a stroke
• Improves fertility
• Restores sleeping pattern
• Revitalizes the body
Whilst lying fully clothed on a couch, or
sitting in a chair, the therapy is carried out on your bare feet (or
hands) using talcum powder (or corn flour), cream or oil. With controlled
finger and thumb pressure the therapist works over the whole foot and
ankle region intensively for one hour. If you are diabetic, or elderly,
the session will be a lot shorter and lighter.
Ideally, to start, you should have 6 weekly
treatments to break down the build-up of crystals in the feet/hands.
Thereafter, "maintenance" sessions at 2-4 week, and later,
6-week intervals are all that is needed to maintain your well-being.
