Reflexology is a holistic treatment that empowers the body to bring it back to its optimum state of ‘homeostasis’ or balance. It can help improve many everyday conditions as well as longterm chronic or debilitating illnesses. Incredibly relaxing and blissful, reflexology is a non-invasive ancient, natural therapy that works on the reflex points to all systems and organs on the feet, hands or face. Our therapist Ally Brown has been a reflexologist for almost 20 years and has been so rewarded to hear the benefits (physically, emotionally and mentally) that her clients have noticed, many of whom return time after time, year after year.

Reflexology is based on the principle that certain areas on the feet, hands and face are linked through the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. There are 7,000 nerve endings in the human foot alone! By massaging and applying pressure to these reflexes you can stimulate a response and movement of energy along the nerve channels to restore homeostasis (a natural balance within the body). Systems and organs within the body naturally work together to heal and rejuvenate and reflexology will encourage the body into this natural healing state, bringing balance, promoting the natural elimination of toxins and invoking a sense of deep calm and relaxation. Stress, injury or illness can put immense pressure on the body and reflexology can help to bring back the natural balance and encourage the body to do what it naturally should do.

At The Hub Ally offers foot reflexology, facial reflexology, aroma-reflex and pregnancy reflexology. Her natural facial rejuvenation reflexology has the added bonus, as well as being incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating, of reducing fine lines and facial puffiness. Ally is also, on request, available for pregnancy massage.
