What is Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient healing method dating back to 2500 BC. The Egyptians discovered that by working on people's feet, certain health benefits occurred. The theory is that there are pressure points that are directly linked to all of the different body parts including the major organs, muscles and joints.

Today, reflexology is a technique that may involve touching pressure points on one's feet, hands, or ears. Most commonly, however, it is the pressure points of the foot that a reflexologist will work on. By working on these pressure points, the body is allowed to relax and return to a more natural balance, allowing it to heal. The primary effects of working on the pressure points of the feet include:
  • relaxation
  • detoxification and improved circulation
  • assisting to balance your metabolism
  • revitalization
It is estimated that 75% of all diseases are largely due to increased stress or tension. Reducing this stress is the first step towards allowing the body to return to a more natural state.
