Reflexology is the ancient art of using pressure points on the feet or hands to adjust the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns. It is a focused form of acupressure and relaxation techniques, promoting a theraputic effect and helping calm the emotions and assist the body in releasing tension.
The reflexes in the feet and in the hands are actually “reflections” of body parts. Their locations and relationships to each other on the feet follow a logical anatomical pattern which closely resembles the body itself. The physical act of applying specific pressures using thumb, finger and hand techniques results in stress reduction and in turn, positive physiological changes in the body.
