Reflexology is a natural and safe therapy that uses the technique of applying gentle pressure to reflex points on the feet, hands or face. It is based on the theory that different reflex points correspond with different areas of the body. By stimulating these reflex points a positive response can be achieved in the corresponding part of the body. It is a therapy that can be received by anyone at any age.
So is it a foot or hand massage?
Reflexology is different than massage. Reflexology works through nerve endings whereas massage is applied to the muscles and soft tissue of the body.
Reflexology is not a ‘modern‘ alternative therapy. There is some dispute as to where and when it was ‘discovered’. The Chinese used a form of foot massage 5000 years ago and developed it alongside acupuncture. American Indians practiced a form of Reflexology for hundreds of years. They were aware of the exchange of energy from the earth through the feet and the importance of not having any blockages in the feet to hinder the movement of energy. Other evidence suggests that its origins go back as far as 2300 BC. An Egyptian mural in the tomb of a famous physician depicts what appears to be a Reflexology treatment being performed on hands and feet.

I have been attending Shameen reflexology sessions since July.
When I came for a first treatment my sciatica was acute, I was tired and drained.
I have tried physiotherapy, pain clinic, acupuncture, massages before but nothing was as effective as Shameen’s reflexology. I had foot , hand , facial reflexogy and Reiki.
Shameen has a natural ability to heal. I can feel the heat and energy passed through her hands into my body.
She accommodates every session to my needs and her professional, kind and calm approach makes me feel comfortable and relaxed.
I leave Shameen’s sessions revitalised, energised and pain-free.
I would highly recommend Shameen’s sessions.
She is amazing.

So it’s week 3 of my Zone Face Lift. The procedure is beautiful, natural and Shameen is amazing. I go into a world of relaxation like I have never before. My lines are slowly disappearing and my skin looks and feels righter and has a youthful glow. I can only imagine the results after a few more weeks.
