What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a form of body
work and natural healing that uses gentle touch to stimulate pressure points
located in the feet, hands, and ears, prompting a reflexive response throughout
the entire body. The result is a
noninvasive, gentle, yet effective therapy for stress reduction, mental
fatigue, low energy, and overall health.
How does Reflexology Work?
A reflexology foot session
provides the opportunity to put one’s feet up and relax while gentle pressure is
used to stimulate specific reflex points on the feet and hands. By applying pressure using thumb, finger, and
hand techniques to these areas it results in the reduction of stress which
encourages physiological changes in the body.
Stimulating a reflex promotes health in the corresponding areas of the
body that are connected to the reflex. A full 50 minute foot treatment will
cover all reflex points on both feet, helping to normalize all body functions,
thus improving the overall health and balance of the entire body naturally.
Reflexology and Relaxation
Relaxation is viewed as an
essential element to the overall health and condition of one’s physical,
emotional, and mental well-being. It is
known as the antidote to stress and plays an important part in the prevention
of disease that is often associated with chronic stress. The lack and inability to relax will
eventually cause tension, anxiety, and stress to increase. Overall health begins to suffer as the body
becomes out of balance and loses its ability to function efficiently and effectively. Reflexology therapy promotes and facilitates
the relaxation process and is a beneficial solution for those who have
