Reflexology Therapy in London
How can putting pressure on your big toe ease the symptoms of a headache? Or rubbing the arch of your foot boost your sluggish digestion? Reflexology shows you how. Each part of our body intimately interconnects through a series of nerve pathways and chemical systems. Reflexology teaches us to understand this interconnectedness and provides a map of health, using our hands, feet and ears as guides.
Using the pressure points — also known as reflexes — on your hands, feet and ears, reflexology helps to heal blockage, pain and tension within the body. These reflexes each correlate to a different part of the body via the nervous system. So, the heel of the foot connects to the lower back and intestine, the arch with the liver, kidneys and pancreas, and the toes with the head and neck. By stimulating these reflexes in specific places, reflexologists can address the illnesses within your body safely, naturally — and without resorting to extreme measures.
Whether you suffer from poor organ function, experience chronic neck pain, or are constantly tackling headaches— reflexology can help.

What is the Benefit of Reflexology?
Reflexology is far more than a way to soothe aching feet — although it certainly does do that! It offers innumerable physical, mental and emotional and is a natural and holistic way to heal and cure a range of issues.
Some of the top benefits of reflexology include:
- Stress reduction
- Instant relief for aches and pains
- Boosted circulation. Reflexology also helps to break down deposits in the bloodstream
- Soothing of tension headaches
- Reduction of arthritic pain
- A rebalanced gut and relief from digestive discomfort and disorders
- Improved sleep quality
What to Expect From a Reflexology Session?
Your reflexology session will begin with a consultation with your therapist. During this time, your therapist will ask you about your medical history, diet, health and lifestyle. This step is integral to the session as it allows your therapist to curate your personalised treatment, so don’t be nervous about sharing how you truly feel.
Once the therapist has a full picture of your health, you will be instructed to remove your shoes and socks and sit in a comfy reclining chair or on a massage table. When you feel settled in, the therapist will begin to warm up your feet and start applying a little pressure to the toes and the heel. This initial stage is similar to a glorious foot massage and is designed to help you to relax and ease into the session.
Throughout the session, your therapist will apply firm pressure to areas of tension and tenderness in your foot using their thumb, fingers and hands. Although reflexology shouldn’t hurt, you may feel a little tender or sensitive in certain areas of your foot. This is natural as your therapist is targeting the points of tension and blockage in your body.
You may notice the benefits of the treatment after one session, or you may need to undertake a series of treatments. But for most people, a reflexology session is deeply relaxing, calming and restorative — and they’re more than happy to keep going back for more!
