Reflexology is a relaxing, ancient form of bodywork that has gained popularity in West in the last few decades. There is archaeological evidence showing that various forms of reflexology date back to Egypt (2330 BC), China (2704 BC) as well as Japan (690 AD).
Reflexology is holistic; treating the whole person and not just the presenting symptoms. It helps people of all ages maintain a sense of good health and well-being. Research has shown that reflexology can help to reduce pain and improve healing & circulation and promote relaxation.
Reflexology is not a foot massage, instead it is based on the idea that every part of the body is interconnected through the nervous system and can be accessed through specific points on the feet, hands, and ears. A reflexologist is trained to know how and which points on the feet, hands or ears to stimulate to achieve the desired result.
Reflexology is an excellent technique for those who are new to more natural paths of healing, are uncomfortable disrobing or are unable to have direct pressure over other areas of the body due to illness or surgery.
