I am a Qualified Reflexologist and Colour Reflexologist based in Bourne, Lincolnshire.
Reflexology has been around since the Early Egyptians, as seen in the art work in the tombs, dating back to around 2000BC. In the early 19th. Century the discovery was made that applying even precise pressure along the 10 vertical zones on the feet that correspond to the 10 vertical zones on the body, that it could ease underlying problems. It is a simple non-invasive way to natural health.
Reflexology is a form of 'Holistic Therapy' which is working on the whole person, the mind, body and spirit, to help the body start its own healing process. It works on the principle that reflex points in the feet and hands correspond to each organ, gland and structure in the body.
Reflexology is a benefit to all ages; it is good for specific problems and also a form of preventative care. It is also beneficial for people with busy, stressful lifestyles, to help them relax.

This is using a colour therapy torch alongside reflexology and how they can be combined to enhance the over all treatment and help ease the conditions present. Colour Therapy is the use of vibrational frequency of the colours of the spectrum to correct the imbalance or disharmony in the human body. Using colour works on the physical, emotional and mental aspects of the person. The right main colours used will be red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, violet and magenta via the colour therapy torch. These colours correspond to the colours of the chakras, the energy centres, which relate to the endocrine system and the corresponding organs in the physical body.
The Transverse Zones in the body and feet relate to areas of the body and the rest relate to specific colours. The crystal torch shines light through the coloured discs onto the crystals rounded end.
I will carry out a full reflexology treatment, we will look for any areas with crystallized deposits indicating a blockage in the energy centres, a manifested disease or areas in the body that are working over time in the body. The reflex points indicated the area of the body where there is a problem. This area may feel tender or painful on the foot, depending on how long the energy has been blocked. Using the colour torch is a painless method of breaking down the accumulated energy. Colour added to the treatment can bring about a feeling of total relaxation. I spend rough 1-2 minutes per area needing the colour, then another 30-60 seconds with its complementary colour.
