TROPIC FACIALS AND REFLEXOLOGY
Qualified in Beauty therapy and Reflexology, reflexology is a popular and relaxing treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, top and sides of the feet correspond to areas throughout the body . In this way, the feet can be seen as a map of the body. Reflexologists work on the reflex points using their thumbs, fingers and knuckles applying gentle pressure and specialised massage techniques thought to correct imbalances throughout the body.
The Chinese are said to have used an early form of reflexology more than 5000 years ago in their use of pressure therapies (acupressure). Egyptian tomb artwork also shows foot massage indicating that working on the feet is an ancient practice used in many cultures. Modern reflexology was developed by Eunice D Graham in the 1930’s and is now a popular complementary therapy.
