Reflexology is a holistic approach to returning the physical, mental and emotional well-being of one back to balance and health. It is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. With your feet having almost 7200 nerve endings, they have the greatest potential for restoring health and balance. Stimulating these reflexes properly can improve many health problems in a natural way, and can be used as a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology is a unique advancement in the health field and should not be confused with massage.
Reflexology is non-intrusive, as some other modalities may be for some individuals. The reflexologist uses gentle and relaxing pressure with fingers and thumbs to stimulate the reflexes.
