Reflexology is an ancient health therapy which might have been practiced for more than 5000 years. It is based on the theory that all parts of our body are connected by energy pathways. A reflexologist uses gentle pressure on specific areas of the feet (or hands) to stimulate healing in the corresponding organs, glands and systems of the body. This releases areas of tension and helps energy to flow more freely throughout the body. Reflexology is deeply relaxing, a great way of releasing stress and helps to improve general well-being. Maria Frauenrath, Founder of Footloose Reflexology in Sevenoaks, is a certified Reflexologist (Level 3 Diploma) and a full member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR). She also works as a volunteer therapist in the Hospice in the Weald and continues to undertake further specialist training.
