Reflexology

Reflexology is based on the study of reflexes and is a natural therapeutic method based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet linked to all the organs and systems of the body. Reflexology is a non-invasive and gentle therapy that restores the body’s natural balance, which in turn promotes relaxation and healing.

How Does Reflexology Help?

Reflexology therapy can help relieve stress and support your body’s efforts to function at optimal efficiency. The application and effect of Reflexology are unique to each person. The Reflexologist’s trained hands detect tiny deposits and imbalances and by stimulating these points, blockages are released. Reflexology is a safe and non-invasive complementary therapeutic practice.

Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. Reflexology is sometimes combined with other hands-on therapies and may be suggested as a complementary therapy by chiropractors, physical/physio therapists, and other health care practitioners.

The History of Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient healing art, which is over 3,000 years old. Its roots can be found in India, Egypt and China. Reflexology therapy is primarily done on the feet and hands. There are reflexes on the feet, hands, face and ears that correspond to every organ and system of the body. Through the gentle application of pressure and the stimulation of these reflexes, the body can help heal and balance itself. Not only does Reflexology promote balance within the body, it may also help to increase circulation, help with foot pain, and relieve stress. This wonderful therapy will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Everyone can benefit from reflexology.
