Reflexology is a gentle, noninvasive, totally holistic therapy based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, and ears which correspond to organs, glands, and parts of the body. It is a treatment for your entire body – it should not be confused with foot massage.
The treatment is not just limited to the feet. During a session, reflexology will also be performed on your face, ears, and hands. It is the practice of strategically applying pressure to areas of the feet and hands as they correspond with specific body organs. By stimulating nerves on specific areas of the feet and hands, we can stimulate blood flow and eliminate toxin buildup in the corresponding organs and systems of the body.
During the treatment, the reflexologist will touch and manipulate different areas of your feet, hands, and ears. Although pressure applied will be the same for each area, some areas will seem more tender to you. This indicates that there is an issue or blockage in that corresponding organ, gland, or body part.
Not only is it beneficial as a tool for relaxation and stress relief, but it is also an effective tool for improving
circulation; relieving pain, and is a nervous system and immune system stimulator. In fact, many
people with illnesses such as sinus problems, acid reflux, migraines, PMS, menopause,
insomnia, fertility problems, and even arthritis have been helped tremendously by
Reflexologists see the hands and feet as an open door to the bodies systems.
Reflexologists do not diagnose or claim to cure a sickness or disease. The
results, however, speak for themselves. Reflexology is now one of the most
sought after treatments for overall health and well being.
