What is reflexology?

Reflexology is an alternative treatment for a wide variety of conditions and has been in use for thousands of years. It involves applying gentle pressure to a person’s feet in order to affect a physical change to the body. Placement of pressure is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that correspond to other parts of the body. This mixture of healing art and science is based on the premise that an energy channel encompassing 12 vital organs exists from our feet to the tops of our heads. Applying pressure unblocks that channel to restore proper health and organ function.

Overall health begins in your feet and travels up. The benefits are endless, not to mention it feels great!!! Just some of the benefits include:

  • Increase energy
  • Relieve stress, pain and anxiety
  • Stimulate activity of internal organs
  • Improve lymph and blood circulation
  • Relaxation
  • Aids in elimination of toxins from the body
  • Improve mental and emotional state

Reflexology treatment provides the ideal conditions for “Body-mind” rebalancing and healing to take place. It is thought that in this state the mind quiets and chemicals are released which help to balance the digestive system, bring the heart rate down and reduce the amount of stress hormones in the body. This in turn can help to reduce and relieve many stress related problems.
