Our feet have over 70,000 nerve endings that coincide with the different areas of our body. In a healthy body the brain is constantly sending out and receiving messages but at times of illness and stress our communication pathways do not function correctly, leaving us tired and stressed with our immune systems unable to cope.Research has shown that 75% of illness is stress related and by applying pressure to the feet and hands our energy balance is restored, leaving us with an emotional sense of well-being.A qualified non-medical therapist practices reflexology, but the results from Reflexology have been so impressive, that many midwives and medical staff have taken up this gentle but affective natural therapy.
