Reflexology is a type of massage that focuses primarily on the feet, along with the hands to target and heal the entire body. Extensive research has shown that certain parts of your feet and hands called “reflex areas” correspond to certain parts of your body, such as specific organs and glands.
Just a few examples include the tips of the toes reflect the head and the heel has an influence on the lower back and intestines. Energetic pathways allow the pressure applied by the therapist’s fingers and thumbs to the reflex areas on your feet and hands to be transmitted to other areas of your body. By receiving a Reflexology treatment, not only are you giving your feet and hands a break, which is much needed considering all the work they do day in and day out, but you are also improving and treating other parts of your body without even touching them.
As you can see, this is a very powerful and effective treatment. Reflexology can provide many health benefits including and not limiting to, relieving back pain, helping digestive problems, reducing tension headaches, balancing hormones, and decreasing menstrual disorders. Relaxation is achieved, circulation is improved, and overall healing is encouraged.
