Reflexology is an ancient healing art, based on the premise that there are zones and reflexes in the feet, hands and ears which correspond to all body parts. By applying pressure to particular points using thumb, finger and hand techniques, reflexology promotes the natural functioning of the corresponding areas of the body. It stimulates neural pathways to release blockages and restore the flow of invigorating energy throughout the body. Coupled with specific massage, it relaxes, reduces tension and improves circulation to create an environment for healing.
Who Can Benefit From Reflexology?
Since reflexology treats the whole person, not the symptoms of the disease, most people benefit from treatment. The therapy brings relief to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for all ages. Once your body is in-tune, it is wise to have regular treatments in order to help maintain health and well-being. An increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy as a way of relaxing, balancing and harmonizing the body.
