What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is the application of pressure, stretch and movement to the feet and hands to affect corresponding parts of the body. The basic premise of reflexology is that applying pressure to various points in the hands and feet can cause relaxation. Relieves stress and tension, normalize and balance the body. As well as act as a form of preventive medicine.

Reflexologists view the feet and hands as a mirror image of the body, By applying technique, a reflexologist can break up patterns of stress in other parts of body. Stress is a barrier to the body’s return to a normal state of equilibrium. Many ancient cultures made use of this science, including early civilizations in India, China, Japan, and Egypt.

Our feet are microcosms-or maps –of our entire bodies. They contain thousands of tiny nerves called reflexes which correspond to every organ and system within the body. Simply pressing on these reflex points can create amazing results. Reflexology reduces stress. Revitalizes and balances energy and creates an overall sense of well-being.
