What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary, holistic therapy based on the principle that all areas of the body are reflected on the hands and the feet. Exerting varying pressures on the specific areas of the hands and feet can encourage specific and identified parts of the body to respond. Reflexologists can detect subtle changes and imbalances in the body by examining and working on the feet. Working on the reflexes helps to improve circulation, induce relaxation and enable homeostasis (the body’s natural ability to find equilibrium), boosting the immune system and maintaining health by bringing balance to the whole system.
