What is Reflexology
Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas of the body - most commonly the feet, but also the hands, ears and face.
The theory behind reflexology is that each of these nerve points corresponds with different areas in the body through energy channels. By triggering these pressure points you trigger the body’s self-healing, addressing and balancing all systems in our body.
Massage and Reflexology therapist Janicke Michael explains how Reflexology works.

It would allow mums, partners and dads and others affected by babyloss the space to surrender to, and release, overwhelming feelings and tension, opening up energy paths in the body and will offering emotional release, peace, balance, lightness and relaxation.
