Although reflexology is sometimes called foot massage, it is more than simple foot massage. Reflexology involves applying pressure to certain points on the foot that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Reflexology is very relaxing, especially for people who stand on their feet all day or just have tired, achy feet.
Reflexology is based on the scientific principle that reflex areas in the feet, hands and ears relate to various organs and other parts of the body. In a reflexology session, the therapist applies pressure to these reflex areas in order to bring health and balance to the body through the stimulation of the body’s own in-built healing capacity.
Reflexology is generally a very subtle, non-intrusive therapy. For this reason, it is one of the few natural therapies that have been adopted in holistic practices all over the world. Increasingly it is being in aged-care programs and also to complement massage and other tactile therapies.
Reflexology relieve stress and tension, brings harmony to the body and increases your immunity. Studies show that long-term treatment can assist with a wide range of ailments from pre-menstrual syndrome to migraines, digestive issues and arthritis.
