This Edinburgh reflexology service has now ceased operation.
Sheena Holden thanks all her clients over twenty-one successful years. She has now retired from this practice. This web page will remain for a short while to serve as an ongoing reference.
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary, holistic therapy consisting of a precise type of massage to the feet or hands. Every area of the human body has a corresponding “reflex area” in the feet and hands, connected by energy lines, and the therapist will interpret different sensations felt to address any imbalances.
Reflexology is the modern name for an ancient therapy first practised by the Chinese around 3000 BC. It was also practised by the Egyptians around 2300 BC (as shown by a tomb drawing) and the Japanese, as well as some Amerindian tribes.
