Foot Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet, which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes can help many problems in a natural way.
Reflexology improves all of the body’s functions, and this, in turn, encourages the natural healing process to work that more speedily and efficiently.

Reflexology during pregnancy “helped with all the niggling aches and pains as I got bigger. It was an hour a week where I could relax. Made me feel weightless” LW – Kilkenny
“I attend Reflexology treatments with Catriona on a monthly basis to maintain good health and for relaxation. Some time ago I bruised my rib cage. Breathing was shallow and painful, so I went to the Doctor who prescribed painkillers. I booked a treatment with Catriona the next day and my breathing improved straight after the session and there was considerably pain. The bruises were also gone within a few days. All without even touching the pain killers. I would highly recommend Catriona and Reflexology to anyone, it’s a true blessing!” Gabi – Kilkenny
“I initially attended Catriona over two years ago to help me relax and reduce my stress levels. When my husband and I went for our third IVF cycle, Catriona was of great help to me preparing my mind and body. After each session with Catriona I felt mentally rejuvenated and stronger, during the session I found myself relaxed and my mind became peaceful and focused. During my pregnancy, I found reflexology helped ease the general aches and pains associated with pregnancy and also my swollen hands and feed towards the end of my pregnancy. Catriona is extremely talented in her profession and she is also a very kind and caring woman. If you are thinking of trying reflexology and are in the area I would definitely recommend using Catriona” Laura – Carlow
