Natural | Non-invasive | Cleansing | Healing

Reflexology is a non-invasive massage type technique that applies pressure to your feet
treating the body as a whole. The treatment has very few contraindications making it
appropriate for most people, but a consultation will be carried out prior to treatment. It aims to bring about a state of relaxation and support the body's own healing process by working in a similar way to acupressure and acupuncture.

What does the treatment entail?

At Vitae Vi we offer the opportunity to experience a unique 15 minute guided breathing session followed by a reflexology treatment. Fully engaged diaphragmatic breaths help activate the parasympathetic nervous system helping to override the fight or flight, freeze response.

Additionally, the rhythmic flow of the breath gently pumps the lymphatic system, helping to move lymph, improve the immune system and encourage a state of deep relaxation. Beginning with light massage to encourage relaxation in the feet and ankle areas, the treatment then progresses by working over the 7000+ nerve endings and reflex points in the feet in a systematic way to encourage the release of any blocked energy pathways. Allowing the energy to flow freely aims to restore balance to the body.


The treatment feels relaxing and soothing, but pressure on some areas may be mildly uncomfortable. A short gentle
massage and diaphragm press will bring the treatment to a close.

Primary benefits include:

Improved immunity

Lower inflammation

Primary benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology has been shown to improve and maintain homeostasis, the body’s natural balance. By improving lymphatic drainage, reflexology can help eliminate toxins, reduce inflammation and enhance the body’s natural defence mechanisms.


The treatments calming effect on the nervous system can be beneficial for individuals dealing with anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions. Most people feel relaxed following treatment, but you can feel very tired, light headed, have an emotional response or even feel full of energy.


All reactions are a good response to treatment as this shows your body is in the process of rebalancing itself.

It is always good to hear how people feel following treatment.
