There are various types of reflexology available: most work on either the hands or feet, accessing reflex points which refer to certain parts of the body. There are other methods of reflexology that work on the face/head/ear or spine to access reflex points in the same way.
The theory behind reflexology was documented thousands of years ago and is based on the belief that every body part is interrelated through the nervous system to reflex points on the hands, feet, face or spine. By applying gentle pressure to these reflex points, the energy to the corresponding area of the body is improved, thus helping to bring the body back into balance.
Progressive Reflex can have the following benefits:
- Aid relaxation
- Reduce pain
- Improved circulation
- Produce a sense of well-being, offering relief from stress related condition

Kinesiology is a holistic therapy, treats the whole person: emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.
The definition of the word Kinesiology is: Science and Study of the movement of muscles. To explain this, if the word is broken down: Kinesis comes from a Greek word meaning ‘movement of muscles’ and words ending in ‘ology’ mean the science and study of, developed in the 1960’s by Dr George Goodheart.
Muscle feedback/monitoring (or testing) is used as a way of interacting with a person’s body to identify what the body needs/where a blockage has occurred and then using a range of treatments/corrections to help bring the body back into balance.
Each treatment is as individual as each person, advice may be given regarding nutrition and lifestyle.
Aromatherapy uses volatile plant oils known as essential oils for the treatment or prevention of disease. This type of complementary therapy treats the whole person and not just the symptom or disease by supporting the body’s natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself.
Essential oils are made up of tiny aromatic molecules that are absorbed into the blood stream via the skin. Alternatively oils can be diffused into the air and the molecules then enter the lungs and subsequently circulatory system, which in turns transports them to where they are most needed and the body can benefit from their healing attributes. As essential oils are concentrated, only tiny quantities of essential oil are necessary to bring about results. Essential oils can be delivered to the body in: massage medium, aromatic baths, diffusers and toiletries
Aromatherapy is a popular therapy, offering a range of effective treatments to both the acute and chronic stages of illness and disease. Whilst the regular use of aromatherapy treatments and home-use products can help to strengthen the immune system, thereby establishing a preventative approach to overall health.

RLD is a reflexology technique developed by Sally Kay (website link below) which concentrates on stimulating the lymph reflexes on the feet in order to aid the lymphatic system of the body.
“Reiki” means ‘universal life energy’
The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words: Rei means: “God’s Wisdom or Higher Power” and Ki meaning: “Life force energy”.
The technique originates from Japan and was founded in the late 19th century by Dr Mikao Usui.
Energy, (acknowledged as ‘ki’ or ‘chi’), flows from the hands of the therapist to a particular area or generally to the recipient. This energy finds it own route through and around the body using meridians and energy centres called ‘chakras. This unseen energy is thought to balance the body in order to create a sense of well-being and spiritual restoration.
