REFLEXOLOGY WITH ANDREA HURST

The Healing art of reflexology is a holistic treatment. Holistic is a term taken from the Greek word “holos” meaning “whole”. Therefore this treatment aims to treat the person as a whole being. incorporating mind, body and spirit. 

Reflexology is also known under the heading of “preventative medicine” and “complimentary Medicine”. The term “preventative” is used because often a reflexologist can detect an area of imbalance via the reflex points and will work to help correct the imbalance thus helping to prevent the development of some form of disease. The term “complimentary” is also used because reflexology can be used effectively alongside other forms of treatment. It is important to bear in mind that even if you are in good health reflexology will help your body to function more efficiently.
