Body

“Almost everyone – young and old, and those recovering from surgery – can benefit from a Reflexology treatment,” says lead therapist Nadège. “The theory behind it is that specific areas on the hands and feet correspond to the rest of the body. Applying pressure to these areas restores balance within the body and relieve stress.”

During your treatment

Your therapist is a total pro. They’ll start off with a health assessment, which will cover your medical history and any current conditions.

They’ll typically ask you to sit on a chair or table, before cleansing your feet and using a wax or oil to perform the massage.

Post-treatment, you should feel relaxed, calm and balanced. Depending on where you and your therapist choose to focus on, you may also feel energised, experience slightly heightened emotions, and notice improved circulation and digestion. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
