What is Reflexology?
Reflexology, not to be confused with massage, is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which coorespond to all of the glands, organs and other various parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way. Reflexology is a type of preventative maintenance.
Is Reflexology new?
The idea behind reflexology is not new - in fact, it was practiced as early as 2330 B.C. in the Egyptian culture. Forms of reflexology are also present in most healing traditions of Asia. Traditional Chinese medicine and the Ayurvedic tradition of India both have used forms of reflexology for thousands of years.
How does Reflexology work?
Reflexology stimulates blood exchange and nervous system response in vital systems in the body, while at the same time relaxing non-essential systems. This allows the body to do what it does naturally: rejuvenate while at rest.
