Reflexology is the name given to the natural therapy which involves stimulating particular points on the feet or sometimes hands, to bring about relaxation, balance and healing. Reflex points on the feet and hands are linked to other areas and organs in the body.
Reflexologists use their thumbs and fingers to apply gentle pressure to the feet. The application and effect of the therapy is unique for each person. Trained sensitive hands can detect tiny crystal deposits and imbalances in the feet. By working on these points the reflexologist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy throughout the body. Circulation and elimination are improved and tension eased as the body is encouraged to heal itself.
Reflexology treats the person as a whole as no system within the body works alone. By balancing each system you create a homeostasis within the body.
