What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them creates real benefits for the person’s health.
How It Works
The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are certain points or \”reflex areas\” on the feet and hands that are connected energetically to specific organs and body parts through energy channels in the body. By applying pressure to reflex areas, a reflexologist is said to remove energy blockages and promote health in the related body area. Here are some examples of reflex areas and their corresponding body parts: The tips of the toes reflect the head The heart and chest are around the ball of the foot The liver, pancreas, and kidney are in the arch of the foot Low back and intestines are towards the heel According to reflexologists, pressure on the reflex points also helps to balance the nervous system and stimulates the release of endorphins that help to reduce pain and stress.
