What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a great technique which works on the principle that “reflexes” on the feet correspond to every part of the body, including each gland and organ. Applying specific and appropriate pressure to these reflexes can help the body heal itself, by relieving tension, improving circulation, and releasing blockages.
Reflexology has a very beneficial effect on the organs and person’s general health. For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder point. When a reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it affects bladder functioning.
Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS, and sinusitis and much more other conditions.
