Reflexology is a holistic therapy that treats the feet in order to balance the whole body. It involves the reflexologist applying pressure to specific areas in the hands, feet, and ears that affect certain reflex areas of the body. The feet and hands are like a mini map of the body’s anatomy. The aim is to stimulate the body’s own healing processes in order to keep it in balance.
Reflexology is an alternative treatment for a wide variety of conditions, and has been in use for thousands of years. The ancient Chinese and Egyptians have documented practices similar to reflexology as a treatment for certain afflictions.
The therapy also helps relieve sleep disorders, reduces depressions and relieves pain. Reflexology is used by many people to relieve migraines and headaches.
