Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage Information

Clinical Reflexology can be incorporated into a preventative healthcare lifestyle, which is becoming more and more important in modern life, as we continue to realise the damage caused to health by our environment.

There are many scientific studies which verify the effectiveness of Reflexology.
Reflexology releases tension, improves circulation and normalizes the body function, a compliment to conventional and traditional healthcare which is recognised by the NHS. Any pains in the body may be identified and worked through the feet.
