Joint Mobility and Flexibility

It all starts from the ground up. Your feet might not seem like significant contributors to your overall health. However, when it comes to the external aspects of your body, there is no harder working part than your feet. They keep you moving, and if you take proper care of them, your feet will prevent back knee and hip pain.

Ankle mobility and flexibility are extremely important. Ankle’s that are tight and restricted often causes the rest of the body to compensate for their flaws, which results in muscle and joint pain throughout the body. If your ankles are tight you might experience hip, back or knee pain.

Welcome. reflexology


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.

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.

Welcome. Hippo Brain

Alzheimer's Disease and Reflexology Hippocampus

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

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).

Reflexology through the ages...

Is your baby suffering with colic or teething pain? Have you a teenager studying for exams or worried about identity, friendship groups and other pressures? Reflexology is a fabulous tool that can be used to help ease many common concerns and discomforts at all stages of childhood and adolescence.
Treatments are modified to suit the age of the client - so a much shorter treatment is given to babies and younger children.

Reflexology for Cancer Care

Reflexology may be a good choice for patients who don’t want to be touched, or who can’t be touched or moved during treatment. Unlike massage, it involves only the feet, with no re-positioning or undressing required.
