The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot can bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body. Reflexology is one of the most popular types of massage.
Reflexology uses a targeted, pressure-point massage to restore the flow of energy throughout the body. The treatment usually focuses on the feet, but it can also include the hands and ears. Beyond the feel-good effects of the treatment, the practice and purpose go deeper than the skin and muscles. Kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel, and pushing deep into the arch are just a few of the movements you will experience during a treatment.
Reflexology can address anything from headaches to sinus problems to sleep issues. If sensitivity or tenderness is experienced when an area is stimulated, it usually indicates bodily weaknesses or imbalances within the corresponding organ. Other potential benefits of reflexology include relieving tension, improving body function, reducing stress, improving circulation, and increasing mobility.
With repeated pressure and manipulation of nerve endings, reflexology can help to clear any channels of blocked energy. It is said to do so through moving the flow of blood, nutrients, and nerve impulses. This ultimately improves overall health and balance.
