Reflexology is a gentle non-invasive holistic therapy that originated in China centuries ago. It is an ancient and effective form of therapeutic foot massage that works on precise reflex points on the feet. The feet are regarded as a map or a mirror of the person and their body.
Gentle and therapeutic stimulation of these points improves circulation, balances and relaxes the body, evoking a profound sense of relaxation and well-being, reducing stress and tension, two of the major causes of illness today. Simply put, it activates the body’s natural self-healing ability and may be regarded as a positive step towards a healthier lifestyle. 1 hour session €60

“As a practitioner, Michelle’s initial assessment was very different to most. There was no rush, no strict adherence to time but instead Michelle wanted to know about my life/personality and she is so easy to talk to. Although very professional, she is also warm, kind and an empathetic listener. I undertook a course of reflexology and I can honestly say that I had one of the best night’s sleep after the first session. It was thoroughly relaxing and as Michelle thoroughly enjoys her work, the whole experience is very rewarding as a result. It is also one of the best value treatments I have come across. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michelle”. Susan 04/11/17
