It is so important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Proper diet and nutrition, physical exercise, regular health checks, and a balanced lifestyle are vital elements of maintaining wellness. Life often gets in the way of our best efforts. Injury, illness, stress and poor diet contribute to keep us below par. When our body is in a state of 'dis-ease', it requires extra energy and attention to restore a proper balance.

"Drinking water is so critical to our general health and well-being. Three pints - two litres - of water a day is recommended to maintain good hydration."

It works on the idea that the body's organs and systems are reflected in 'reflexes' in the hands and feet, in that a particular point on the foot or hand refers to a specific organ or part of the body. It is given by pressure of the thumb and fingers in a slow creeping motion across the foot and hands.

A relaxing, soothing massage to improve circulation of the blood and the oxygen and nutrients it carries. It involves flowing, gliding strokes, kneading muscles, and friction to generate heat and loosen adhesions.

Swollen feet, calves and ankles? If you suffer from fluid retention - oedema - then a lymphatic drainage massage can greatly ease your symptoms. Firm massage of the swollen area pushes fluid out, relieving pain and tenderness. Depending on the cause, you might look to a diuretic, or increasing your water intake.
