What is Reflexology?
The most abused and neglected part of the body is our feet!! They are always in motion and over time can make us miserable with annoying pain and discomfort.
The art of reflexology is an ancient therapy that has been practised for over 5000 years and was introduced to the western world over 100 years ago. Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary therapy which is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower legs, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body.
Reflexology rests on the ancient Chinese belief in Qi, or “vital energy.” According to this belief, Qi flows through each person. When a person feels stressed, their body blocks Qi. This can cause an imbalance in the body that leads to illness. Reflexology aims to keep qi flowing through the body, keeping it balanced and disease free.
In Chinese medicine, different body parts correspond with different pressure points on the body. Reflexologists use maps of these points in the feet, hands, and ears to determine where they should apply pressure. They believe their touch sends energy flowing through a person’s body until it reaches the area in need of healing.

Facial Reflexology Sorensen System
A deeply relaxing treatment that brings an overall calming effect on the body and mind, leaving you with a wonderful sense of wellbeing and radiance to your skin.
This beautiful treatment integrates several ancient healing therapies. The therapeutic modality combines Eastern and Western philosophies: Chinese meridian theory and acupuncture, Vietnamese and South American body maps and modern neuroanatomy science.
Facial Reflex therapy works through the stimulation of the many nerve endings in the skin of the face and is able to stimulate the performance of the entire body. There are different microsystems that, like a keyboard related to the brain, send information to the organs, functions and body areas.
As your face is richly supplied with nerves and blood vessels, its close proximity to the brain- the control centre of the body- ensures that stimulus to your face has the shortest route to this important organ in order to effect a re-balancing of your health issues.
Face reflexology is entirely safe for all age groups including children, with virtually no contra-indications. It promotes deep relaxation enabling those areas of the body and mind that are out of balance to begin to heal and repair.
Using only hands and a combination of Tropic Skin Care facial oils or Coconut oil, fingertip techniques work through the points and facial maps involved in the 7 steps to bring about balance to our mind and body.
When life gets busy and stressful it can be hard for us to pick up the subtle messages our body sends us. The body is constantly communicating with us through the nervous system, this feedback lets us know when things are getting out of balance and need some of our attention. Facial reflexology is a wonderful, deeply relaxing treatment that allows us to identify imbalances and uses therapeutic techniques to help us tap into our parasympathetic nervous system, where the body does its essential maintenance and helps restore it back to calmness.
Somewhere on your list of priorities….should be YOU!

Kind Client Words
"From the moment you walk into Alexandra's treatment room, you find yourself in serenity. With so many healing modalities in her repertoire, she'll have you bathed in a warm cocoon of calm and healing- she instinctively knows what you need to release whatever it is you need to help to let go of. She truly is a tonic for mind, body and soul. She is a true master of her craft.
Alexandra is the best reflexologist I have ever been to and I have been to many over the years. She always knows what part of my body needs attention and I am constantly amazed how she can find out everything about me from my feet! This is both physically and mentally and she makes me feel so much better by using her ‘magic hands!’ I feel so relaxed during the session and always leave feeling so much better. I highly recommend Alexandra as she is a true professional!
I have had several facial reflexology treatments with Alex. Firstly, she makes you feel so welcome and within her relaxing environment, you soon feel at ease. The process is similar to a facial massage but Alex will work on areas and points on your face to promote natural healing in that area. It felt amazing in reducing my stress levels, releasing tension as well as my skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated afterwards. Highly recommended treatment from a highly skilled and knowledgeable therapist. Can't wait for my next appointment.
