Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive healing art dating back centuries that is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every part of the body. The physical image of the body is mapped onto the feet in a logical, anatomical pattern; the toes represent the head, the ball of the foot corresponds to the internal organs and the heel of the foot corresponds to the pelvic region in our body.
Through application of digital pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, opens the flow in blocked nerves and helps promote the natural functioning and healing of the body. Reflexology does not provide a diagnosis or prescription. The whole body is treated rather than a specific condition. Essentially, reflexology helps to balance the physical, mental and emotional aspects of your whole body. If an organ or gland is underactive or overactive, reflexology strives to help return it to a normal level.
