Healing with the hands is as old as aches and pains. It was known to the ancient Egyptians and Chinese. Foot reflexology is basically a foot massage of nerve impulses and pressure points on the feet. Foot massage releases toxic build up in the form of crystal deposits and stimulates and improves circulation throughout the body.
How it works:
The patient lies comfortably on a table while the practitioner applies their hands on key points on the hands and feet. The practitioner focuses on problem areas such as kidneys or liver by applying pressure and massage to those points.
What are the benefits of reflexology?
And who can it help?
Reflexology promotes proper balance, relieves stress, releases toxins improves circulation and nerve function, enhances the body's own healing process and helps you on your way to becoming a healthier, happier, and more relaxed person.
The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease your body is in a state of "imbalance", and vital energy pathways can be used to restore and maintain the body's natural state of homeostasis and can encourage healing.
Since reflexology treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease, most people benefit from it. Reflexology brings relief to a wide range of symptoms ranging from headaches, stress, allergies, sinus problems, and asthma to muscle aches, depression, arthritis, constipation and many types of disorders.
