Did you know that the average person will takes as many as 10,000 steps a day? And 3 out of 4 might experience foot problems, This is because the foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles. Women have about 4 times as many foot problems as men and some of these problems can be blame on high heels or ill fitting shoes.
Foot ailments can be the first signs of health problems such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders. Also your feet have 250,000 sweat glands, and your feet may excrete as much as half-pint of moisture a day!

How Reflexology can help
Soothing herbal foot soak followed by a 60 minutes treatment
Reflexology is a natural, unique therapy in which pressure is applied to specific points in the feet. Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflexes on the feet which correspond to every organ, gland and area in the body. The vital energy circulating in the body may be blocked or reduced by deep blockages or deposits that resemble a grain of sand or small crystal. Through various reflexology techniques, the therapist will help re-establish proper balance along these energy circuits.
