Foot Health Treatments & Holistic Foot Therapies
Feet play a vital role in transporting body, mind and soul from one experience to the next so that progress can be made through the journey of life.
Awareness of whats a foot is the key to whats directly in front
Choosing a specialist in holistic foot health is a great option. You have a professional who is looking not just at your feet but at your health as it relates to what your feet are experiencing.

A whole person approach to a foot problem
Seaweed & Epsom Salt foot massage
Epsom salts are not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.
Absorbed through the skin Epsom salts also work to relieve muscle tension, pain, and inflammation in joints
Feet are a 'map' of the entire body. No Muscle, no gland, no organ whether internal or external is without a set of nerves whose opposite ends are anchored in the foot. And what does this mean? Simply that when we massage the feet we stimulate and effect all the rest of the body as well.
“Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” – Joshua J Marine.
Research has shown the specific techniques of reflexology to be effective & beneficial in many ways. A survey of 170 reflexology studies from 21 countries shows that reflexology is effective, impacting a variety of physical & psychological concerns.

Reflexology therapy aims to stimulate the body's innate self-healing systems and meridians, thereby reducing anxiety & creating an optimal homeostatic condition to increase circulation, promote healing & improve wellbeing. Thus encouraging the body to use its intrinsic ability to heal itself and restore a natural balance, a holistic approach that is becoming widely recognised & respected in modern medical practice.
