Coming from a Chinese background and being brought up in Singapore, we always strongly believe that using holistic therapy like foot reflexology can help to balance the energy channels to improve well-being. Growing up, it was common practice for one of my family members visit the foot reflexology centre on a regular basis.
I was delighted to get invited to try out a session of reflexology with Sue Burford by the Association of Reflexologists, which supports professionally qualified practitioners. They have over 4,000 members and aims to increase knowledge of this non-intrusive complementary therapy. If you would like find your nearest professional reflexologist, do check out their website for enquiring about treatments.
Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the theory of having different points of the feet mirror the internal organs, and so massaging your foot helps to stimulate your nervous system. Reflexologists believe that by working on the reflex points help to relax and ease stress.
