Reflexology is a natural, holistic therapy, which is carried out on the feet or hands. It has been used successfully for thousands of years by cultures from all around the world. It is based on the idea that the feet are mini maps of the body and that there are points or reflexes on the feet which relate to the vital organs, glands or structures of the body. For example, in reflexology, the big toe is the head and at the base of the big toe are reflexes for the neck.
During a treatment, the therapist uses specific thumb and finger techniques to apply pressure to the reflexes on the feet. This helps clear blockages and congestion in the body, which in turn allows the body to rebalance and be healthy (the blockages or congestion may have arisen from an accident, injury or illness). When the body is not working in harmony, we are more prone to infection which can manifest as colds, headaches and fatigue. Reflexology is an extremely relaxing and revitalising treatment and is suitable for people of all ages.
Benefits of reflexology may include:
- Reduces feelings of stress
- Calms and soothes
- Gives recipient a feeling of well-being
- Relaxes the mind and boy
- Assists body in maintaining a balanced state
Reflexology may help:
- Stress related problems

Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) – Anne Brunton
(Available as a 20 minute standalone treatment or as part of a normal Reflexology treatment).
A revolutionary technique which stimulates reflex points on the dorsal area of the feet while they are in an upright, standing position. This uses the body weight to achieve deeper access to specific reflex points. It also focuses on Synergistic Reflexology which simultaneously works the hand and foot.
VRT is a short, effective treatment which can be used alone or in combination with conventional Reflexology. The body responds rapidly to VRT and it can be incredibly useful when managing the symptoms of pain.
Nerve Reflexology (NR) – Anne Brunton
NR is an advanced manual treatment, which is very effective in treating musculo-skeletal problems (back and muscle pain), and problems with our organs, such as digestive problems. It is a way of working on precise and detailed reflexes to balance and restore coordination between the different parts of the nervous system. The quick impulses conveyed via the nerves ‘kick start’ the whole system and the body becomes much more receptive to further treatment. Nerve Reflexology is particularly effective for long-standing health and pain issues. During a treatment, NR is combined with classical foot reflexology.
Hand Reflexology – Anne Brunton
Hand Reflexology is perhaps not so well known as Foot Reflexology, yet it is equally effective in relieving stress and tension, balancing the body and improving nerve and blood supply
As with the feet, there are reflexes on the hand relating to vital organs, glands and structures of the body. By stimulating these reflexes using special thumb and finger techniques, a Reflexologist can bring about positive health benefits to the client.
Some people have particularly sensitive or ticklish feet, or sometimes people don’t like the idea of someone working on their feet. Hand reflexology is good news for people with these concerns. It is also great for people who work a lot with their hands, as it really helps to relax overworked muscles and ligaments.
Hand Reflexology is also effective for children who can’t sit still! And it’s a fantastic tool for helping children (and adults!) to learn to relax
Anne can also show you how to do hand reflexology on yourself in between treatments.
