What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas usually on the feet, but there are also points on the hands and ears. The theory of reflexology is that specific areas of the foot correspond to different organs and other systems of the body. To be exact, there are 7,000 different nerve endings in the human foot, and applying pressure along these points can help with various illnesses. Reflexology is generally a relaxing process, and may put someone’s stress at ease.

It is similar to a massage, but reflexology differs in that pressure is applied to specific reflex points on the foot and has other benefits in the body. It is more than just a foot massage!

Reflexology can be used to treat a ton of various health issues, from back pain to arthritis, and even migraines and menstruation pain. Reflexology can also strengthen your immune system. Reflexology will make your body feel more balanced, positive, and more energetic than before. We can often find our bodies being thrown out of balance by the unwanted stresses of everyday life. Reflexology works to restore those imbalances and to get your body back on a healthy path. It is not just for the body, but for the mind as well.

Reflexology also naturally detoxes the body by increasing blood circulation. Having a reflexology session every month will help keep the body in balance. Some recommend drinking plenty of water or herbal teas to aid in the detoxification process after you have a reflexology session to reap the full benefits.

Each person has a different body system, so one person's results from a reflexology session could slightly differ from another. Some may come to a session to fix a particular ailment, or others may use it as just a way to find relaxation. Both reasons for seeking a reflexology are welcomed!
