Feet tell a Much Bigger Story

Your feet and lower limbs are often a critical factor in developing or avoiding non communicable health diseases elsewhere in your body. Even if it doesn't immediately seem connected to foot health, the link is real. Think obesity, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and a range of other conditions.

You may be surprised at the link between your feet, and the health of your entire body! By understanding the impact of your feet and legs on your health, you can be more physically active, and improve your health. And nothing is more important than that!

  • Your health relates to how your feet are feeling

  • Professional Foot Care

    You may be experiencing foot pain, ingrown or discoloured skin/nails, corns, skin rashes, foot odour, foot injuries, broader health problems such as diabetes or arthritis, recurrent tripping or falling, problems fitting comfortably in your regular shoes; or if you notice swelling, lumps, or redness on your feet or legs.

    It is a common misconception that painful feet are a normal side effect from everyday activities. Yet research shows that only a fraction of individuals suffering from sore feet seek out professional advice.

    Just as you would visit your dentist for a toothache, you would be well advised to visit a foot health practitioner if you suffer from painful or tired feet and/or lower limbs.

    Clinic appointments are available - Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Galloway

    Feet are a work of art! Or at least Leonardo Da Vinci thought so when he said, ‘The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art. Did you know that your foot contains 28 bones, 33 joints, more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, and 250,000 sweat glands? Your feet support your entire body and need to work well for you to be active and healthy.

    Universal Reflexology

    The feet are a microcosm of the whole body. This holistic treatment involves massaging specific acupressure points on the feet, which helps stimulate energy and circulation, thus supporting the body's own natural healing process.

    Reflexology is suitable for all ages and a wide range of conditions. By encouraging the elimination of toxins from the body, improving circulation and boosting the immune system, reflexology helps to normalise the bodies functions, easing or totally eradicating the symptoms of any number of ailments.

    Arthritis, migraines, sleep problems, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, bladder issues, stress and anxiety are just a few conditions that Reflexology has shown to be particularly helpful.

    Remarkable Effects

    Reflexology has been found to have remarkable effects on illnesses ranging from arthritis, migraine, constipation, ulcers and kidney infections to angina and bronchitis. In some parts of the world, foot massage is a fully accredited medical treatment and is often used as an accurate form of diagnosis, foretelling disturbances in the body long before they become physically present. In Indonesia, for example, it is a traditional practice for a family to massage each other's feet regularly to prevent illness, correcting imbalances before they become serious.

    Peking c. 1870

    Evidence of reflexology was actually labeled by the Scottish photographer, John Thompson who took a picture in Peking, in his book Illustrations of China and Its People (published in 1873-74), as being the practice of chiropody.

    Curious about your health

  • Take a few deep breaths and bring your attention to your feet
  • Is there an area of your feet you feel mst drawn to at this moment?
  • Try to discern if this is your toes, ball of foot instep or heel.

  • Each of the four main elements can be applied to the four distinct parts of the human foot. The toes represent AIR, the ball of the foot represents FIRE, the instep represents WATER and the heel represents EARTH.

  • AIR - in the feet reflects the brain and the sensory organs
  • FIRE - in the feet reflects the heart, lungs, shoulders and diaphragm
  • WATER - in the feet reflects the digestive system, the pool of our emotions
  • EARTH - in the feet reflects the pelvic area and reproductive system and base of the spine.

    Now you have your element to work with today!

  • Thank you for your visit 😊
