What is Reflexology?
The theory behind reflexology is that each of the body’s organs and glands are “linked” to corresponding areas of the hands and feet. The application of pressure to the hands, feet or ears relaxes muscles and improves blood circulation. Energy is restored to the body and ultimately reflexology improves its overall condition. Using thumb, finger and hand techniques pressure is applied to specific areas of the hands, feet and sometimes ears to alleviate common ailments such as headaches, back pain, sinus colds and stress.
