Reflexology is the practice of using unique finger and hand techniques on specific areas of the feet and hands to promote relaxation and to stimulate the body and its healing process.
Reflexology is based on the principle that the entire body is mirrored as reflex areas on the feet and hands. It is believed that these reflexes are linked to the organs and body structures by energy channels and zones.
When illness occurs, these channels become blocked. Reflexology opens these blockages, allowing the energy to flow freely again, restoring the body’s natural balance and good health.
Benefits of Reflexology
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Reflexology is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:
- Decreased anxiety.
- Enhanced sleep quality.
- Greater energy.
- Improved concentration.
- Increased circulation.
- Reduced fatigue.
