What is Reflexology
Reflexology is a powerful form of alternative or complimentary medicine, that involves massage treatment to reflex areas located in both the feet and hands. Most commonly treatment is to the feet.
All parts of the body can be treated by massaging the corresponding reflex areas found in the feet. For example, the right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and the left foot to the left side. By having the whole body represented in the feet, reflexology treats the body as a whole.
All areas on both feet will be massaged and reflex points stimulated. Those points corresponding to parts of the body that are out of balance many feel uncomfortable or tender. Sensitivity of the feet varies from person to person.
The treatment session will last approximately three quarters of an hour. At the end of a session the feet should feel warm and the patient relaxed. The number of treatment sessions required will vary depending on the condition being treated.
One of reflexology’s great contributions to general well-being is that it improves the circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system and helps to cleanse the body of toxins. Drinking water following treatment aids the body’s cleansing process.
