Foot Reflexology

What is Foot Reflexology?

      Reflexology is a type of massage therapy that involves applying different amounts of pressure to specific points along your feet. It’s based on a theory that these pressure points are connected to certain organs and body systems by the Nervous System, also known as Zone Therapy.  When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps to restore homeostasis and balance in the body.

 

      This has been around for thousands of years, first developed by the Egyptians and later found in Chinese cultures. People who practice this technique are called Reflexologists. Reflexologists believe that applying pressure to these parts offers a wide range of health benefits. It helps reduce stress, stimulates your body’s organs, as well as detoxifies your body and gives you more energy. Reflexology is complementary to medical treatments, it can be done alongside traditional medical care.

      There are approximately 7,000 nerve endings in the human foot, each of them is a reflex point that corresponds to body parts and organs. Reflexologists use specific finger and thumb manipulations to stimulate these reflex points and they know exactly which area of the foot corresponds to which body part by learning the Reflexology chart.
