Foot Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is one of the most popular and unique forms of alternative healing available today. The term reflexology refers to the application of pressure, movement and stretching to the feet and hands. These pressure points on the extremities in turn effect the corresponding parts of the body. To reflexologists, the feet and hands are a mirror of the body, and these professionals can use their knowledge to break down patterns of stress and pain throughout the body.

The most obvious benefit of reflexology is the reduction of stress, with all its attendant benefits. Since the feet and hands set the level of tension for the entire body, reflexology uses the feet and hands to interrupt that stress level and reset it. Stress reduction is a vital part of good health, since high stress levels play a role in a number of serious diseases and chronic conditions, among them heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.
