Foot Reflexology is based on a system of points on the feet that relate to specific organs and glands in the body. These points stimulate the flow of energy or “Chi” within the body, thus helping to relieve pain and/or blockages and to ease stress. Manual stimulation to these specific “reflex points” will affect targeted organs via the body’s energetic pathways .Using thumb, fingertip and hand pressure without the use of creams or oils, healing and deep relaxation can be felt throughout the body.
Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. Reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness. These pressure points connect directly through the nervous system, stimulating the nerves which affect the bodily organs and glands. This form of treatment also encourages the flow of blood. The reflexologist manipulates the pressure points according to specific techniques of reflexology therapy. By means of this touching therapy, any part of the body that is the source of pain, illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of this pressure. In the process, reflexology not only suppresses the sensation of pain, but relieves the source of the pain as well.
