Reflexology is akin to massage therapy. It is a natural therapy based on the theory that reflexes in the hands, feet, and ears connect to various parts of the body. A professionally trained Reflexologist can detect the subtle areas of tension at specific points in the hands, feet, and ears. By applying acupressure and massage like technique to those areas, the therapist can stimulate and promote specific bodily, organ, and muscular functions.
The hands and feet are more sensitive than many people realize. As our primary touch sensors, the hands and feet detect pressure, movement, and weight distribution. Luckily, Reflexology is a safe, easy, and beneficial therapeutic method. Studies have shown that this therapy can positively affect the central nervous system and reduce stress.
