Take some time for yourself!
Following the principle that reflexes and meridian points on the feet, hands, ears and face correspond to areas of the body, reflexology uses precise massage techniques on these points to encourage the body's natural ability to rebalance and self-heal.
It's important to remember that reflexology is a complementary therapy - it works alongside, but does not replace, conventional medical care. Reflexologists cannot diagnose, prescribe or cure medical conditions. If you're concerned about any unexplained or unfamiliar symptoms, you should always see your doctor first for an appropriate diagnosis. It is against the advice of Citrine Wellbeing to discontinue any treatment or guidance you may be receiving from qualified medical practitioners.

People have reflexology for lots of reasons. While it's a fabulous way to simply relax and unwind, it shouldn't be confused with foot massage or a beauty treatment; clinical reflexology is a powerful aid to your wellbeing. I'm a firm believer that a proactive self-care routine including regular reflexology helps you to feel balanced and well. A little can go a long way to avoid a build-up of physical and emotional stresses and the detrimental effect these can have on our health over the long term.
