    Everything you need is within you

    Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are."
    Rachel Naomi Remen


    International track and field athlete Steve Watson was left crippled after a horrific sports injury with his 2016 Olympic dream in tatters

    Steve said: “Like many, prior to the Reflexology treatment I was a real sceptic, and now I’m kicking myself for not trying it much earlier following my injury.
    “I would strongly recommend alternative treatments to anyone who has been let down by conventional treatment.
    “It totally worked for me and if it worked on me, it can work on anyone.”
    'The Chinese believe that reflexology stimulates the body into healing itself by improving circulation, reducing stress, pain and restoring natural balance.

    Welcome. WHAT YOU SAY


    Wellness can be defined as an experience or an exploration of what makes you feel good.
    Without proper fuel our bodies will not have the energy to perform at their best. Without exercise our bodies become weaker and less active. The journey through kriya yoga encompasses so much more than the ‘asanas’ or the breathing. Kriya Yoga enables us to handle and explore our attitudes towards the world, ourselves, our concentration and helps us to meditate.

    Welcome. Hippo Brain

    Alzheimer's Disease and Reflexology Hippocampus

    Vladimir Bekhterev was best known for noting the role of the hippocampus in memory, his study of reflexes, and Bekhterev Disease (Ankylosing spondylitis). Moreover, he is known for his competition with Ivan Pavlov regarding the study of conditioned reflexes..

    Alzheimer's disease (and other forms of dementia), the hippocampus is one of the first regions of the brain to suffer damage; short-term memory loss and disorientation are included among the early symptoms. Damage to the hippocampus can also result from oxygen starvation (hypoxia), encephalitis, or medial temporal lobe epilepsy. People with extensive, bilateral hippocampal damage may experience anterograde amnesia (the inability to form and retain new memories).

    The term reflexology was coined by Vladimir Bekhterev 1917 a Russian neurologist and the father of objective psychology.

    History of Reflexology

    Egyptian hieroglyphics depict the ancient beginnings of reflexology approximately 4000 years ago (Kunz & Kunz, 1995). There is evidence that some forms of reflexology were used by the ancient Chinese and early American Indian tribes (Bolting, 1997). Medical practices developed based on the notion that a stimulus applied to the body produces a response in another area of the body.

    The hippocampus is that part of your brain which is responsible for long-term memory and spatial navigation. It is located in the temporal lobe, behind your ear. You have two hippocampi, one on each side of the brain.

    The hippocampus is so important that when it is damaged, you may be unable to form new long-term episodic memories although you may still be able to learn new procedural memories or motor sequences of everyday tasks. Memory is not totally lost as you may still be able to remember events stored prior to hippocampus damage.

    Be Grateful. Even for a Day You’d Rather Forget

    Believe beyond what you can see

    There are billions of people, right now, all around the world, who – if they could swap places with you for just one day – would be living a life so far beyond anything they could have ever imagined. Your day-to-day life is someone else’s wildest dreams come true and much, much more.”
    Don’t Just Think it….FEEL it
    Now rather than just read that sentence, I want you to really feel it; think about those people and imagine they DO have your life for a day – no matter how dismal you think your life is. Imagine how amazed and grateful they would feel each moment for all the things you experience on a daily basis – a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in, food and drinks, clean water, a safe environment.
