What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive therapy which involves applying pressure to the feet, hands and ears with specific thumb, finger and hand movements. Points on the feet and lower leg correspond to different internal organs, glands, as well as muscle groups, bones, joints and body systems. These reflexes are a "reflection" of our body area and provide a map for the practitioner. By stimulating the nerve endings we send messages along the nerve pathways to improve circulation, promote relaxation and normalize function in the related area of the body.
