Reflexology is based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body. These parts, known as reflex points, are found on the soles of the feet. Reflexology is a non-intrusive technique, healing indirectly and works on many levels, soothing, calming, balancing and boosting the entire body. It is especially beneficial for treating back pain, digestive difficulties, premenstrual and menstrual irregularities.
From 1st April 2019 reflexology will no longer be permitted to be covered under private health insurance policies. This is due to the Australian Government private health insurance reforms.
