Healthy lifestyle includes also early diagnosis and treatment of existing diseases. It is especially important for people with chronic diseases. In these cases early diagnosis and treatment helps to avoid complications and /or corresponding disorders.

What is Reflexology?
During reflexology procedure, specialist presses points on our feet, hands or face. This points, called reflexes, are nerve endings corresponding to our internal organs. It is believed that by putting pressure on specific places we can improve functioning of corresponding organs and as the result improve overall condition of our body.
Controversy and facts
Reflexology, like yoga, acupuncture, homeopathy and other alternative health care methods can be controversial and bring up doubts. By some it is called pseudo-science by others a recipe for healthy life.
Regardless of extreme opinions, the fact is that there are over 7000 nerves endings in our foot (which is the main focus of reflexology). Their stimulation allows to get rid of tension and improves the blood circulation and the nerve impulses flow. Without any doubt reflexology procedures may improve our well-being and have a relaxing effect.
How to benefit?
The reflexology session lasts 1 hour. You can make an appointment and for this one hour take pleasure in a massage performed by a qualified reflexologist. The best results of therapy are observed after several sessions. During the first appointment, a reflexologist will evaluate the condition of your body and decide about the number and frequency of your treatment sessions.
During first treatment on your feet you can feel discomfort or even pain, but during next sessions, when the tensions in your body are gradually eliminated, these unpleasant symptoms disappears.
