What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a science that recognizes that there are areas on the feet that correspond to all the organs, glands and parts of the body. It is a method of activating the healing powers of the body through stimulation of these reflexes on the feet.
By working the reflexes through the billions of nerve endings on each foot, the reflexologist
- relieves stress and tension
- improves blood circulation and nerve supply
- promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses
- and helps the body to achieve equilibrium or homeostasis.
It's really very simple – through reflexology, your whole body, inside and out becomes relaxed. When your body is profoundly relaxed, it seeks homeostasis, or perfect balance, releases stress and toxins, and generally enables the body to works better – to heal itself.
Approximately 80% of what ails us is instigated and/or aggravated by the accumulation of stress.
Relieving built-up stress can significantly contribute to better health.
Reflexology is like a massage from the inside out. See informational links on History page.
