Reflexology is an ancient healing technique that is based on acupressure massage applied to "reflex points" on the feet.
These reflex points in the feet correspond to the body's organs, systems and parts. Manipulation of these points allows the corresponding Areas in the body to be stimulated while removing blockages and congestion.
Blockages and congestion within the body are caused by illness, stress, pain, toxins, emotions, poor diet, etc. Removal allows the energy within the body to flow more freely promoting overall health and well being, both physically and emotionally.
Reflexology reduces nervous tension, thereby inducing a deep state of relaxation. Vitality is increased as the trapped energy is released from tense parts of the body.
Circulation of blood is improved, aiding improved transport of nutrients throughout the body and elimination of waste products, thus promoting detoxification.
Reflexology is used to relieve a wide range of stress-related disorders and chronic illnesses. This list below details some of the conditions that can be improved through reflexology:
- Menstrual problems
- Fertility problems
