Seaweed & Epsom Salt foot massage
Epsom salts not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.
Absorbed through the skin Epsom salt 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.
A whole person approach to a foot problem
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.
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.
