Reflexology, or zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on what reflexologists claim to be a system of zones and reflex areas that they say reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
Reflexologists maintain that reflexology:
- Reduces pain
- Ameliorates health concerns
- Improves blood flow
- Aids post-operative recovery
- Enhances medical care
- Benefits mental health
- Complements cancer care
- Eases pregnancy, delivery and post-partum effects
In the UK, reflexology is coordinated on a voluntary basis by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
We will shortly be expanding the range of the directory to include the whole of the UK.
