Reflexology is a pleasant and safe form of therapy that is used as a method of activating the healing powers of the body. It is both old and new.
Although it is based on a similar principle to acupuncture, it is non-invasive. Instead of using needles, pressure is used in specific areas of the foot to reduce stress and tension, and to help promote circulation and well-being.
From ancient tests, illustrations, and artifacts, we know that the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Russians and Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health. Today, many of these same techniques have been developed into a modern scientific method called Reflexology..
What joins the ancients with the moderns is the long-established principals that there are energy zones that run throughout the body, and reflex areas in the feet that correspond to all the major organs, glands, and body parts.
These "reflexes" found in the feet are considered a reflection of the health and state of the body system organs.
Through gentle pressures on appropriate areas of the foot, not only is homeostasis being restored to the recipient, but through the therapeutic use of touch the treatment becomes even more beneficial.
