The systematic manual stimulation of points based on ancient Chinese reflex maps, reflexology points are located on the feet, hands and outer ears that correspond to other parts of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology may relieve tension, improve circulation, and help promote the natural function of related areas of the body. It is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body.
According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into the feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression. This treatment can be used on its own or within another treatment.
Similar to acupressure principles, reflexology works with the body’s energy flow to stimulate self-healing and maintain balance in physical function. This technique is used to reduce pain, increase relaxation, and stimulate circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids. Reflexology is also convenient in cases where an area of the body is traumatized or diseased to the extent that direct manipulation is not appropriate.
