Reflexology is a focused pressure technique based on the premise that there are zones in the hands and feet that are connected to glands and organs in the entire body. When these “reflexes” are stimulated, the body’s natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones. With stress removed and circulation improved, the body returns to a state of homeostasis or balance.
Contemporary reflexology demonstrates four main benefits:
- relaxation and removal of stress
- circulation enhancement
- normalization of metabolism
- complement to other healing therapies
Reflexology-style treatments can be traced back as far as ancient Egypt where hieroglyphs on a physician’s tomb read: “Don’t hurt me” with the practitioner’s reply “I shall act so you praise me”. Throughout the ages since, different practices involving the manipulation of the feet have been used throughout the world, confirming the positive effects of this gentle healing regimen.
