Reflexology is based on the theory that there are a number of reflex points on the feet, hands and ears which are linked to various parts of the body. The area I focus on is the feet. Reflexology can be used not only as a form of relaxation but also to treat injuries and illnesses in the body.
Working with the foot, a reflexologist can determine points of imbalance and/or pain in the body. Through the use of specific massage techniques and application of pressure to these points, stress and pain can be relieved in the area of the body to which they relate.
Additional benefits are:
- Elimination of toxins in the body
- Stimulation of the central nervous system
- Improved blood circulation
- Reflexology is also a non-intrusive and alternative way of working on a client who may not be comfortable with a body massage.
