Reflexology is one of the most popular of all alternative therapies. It involves applying pressure to the feet/hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques.
It is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body.
By manipulating these reflex points you can stimulate the flow of energy to the corresponding body part. This assists with the restoration of balance and stimulating the body’s ability to heal itself, both physically and emotionally.
Reflexology is a beneficial relaxing therapy. It:
- reduces stress
- improves circulation
- reduces pain; and encourages overall healing such as:
- stress related conditions
- tension headaches
- digestive problems and disorders
- menstrual disorders; and
- back pain
