Hand reflexology

 Hand reflexology is an exceptionally relaxing treatment to receive and provides the recipient with the chance to unwind fully.

The wonderful thing about receiving hand reflexology treatment is that you can be treated virtually anywhere, from an aeroplane, train or car to an office, shop or home. It is a safe, natural healing art that you can also use to treat yourself, wherever and whenever you wish .

Hand reflexology is empowering because, whether someone suffers from irritable bowel syndrome, sinusitis, headaches or needs relief from stress, it can help.

It can be used as an alternative to foot reflexology; for example if someone has a foot injury, a leg and foot in a cast, ticklish feet, or if they don't want you to work on their feet for personal reasons. It also makes a good alternative for those suffering from infections such as athlete's foot and for amputees.
