Reflexology is a treatment based on the principle that there are pressure points on different areas of the feet that correspond to every part, gland and organ in the body. A reflexologist performs specific manipulations, mainly using the thumb, to unblock the energy channels and activate the pressure points.
While Reflexology may not be scientifically proven as a medical treatment, it has been used for centuries all over the world to treat different ailments. The idea is that with proper energy flow, the body has the ability to heal itself, physically and emotionally.
The body is divided into ten equal vertical zones, and the different areas of your feet provide a map of the corresponding body organs. In theory, applying pressure to these reflex points allows movement of energy, blood, and nutrients to flow along the nerve channels to stimulate and restore balance in the body. The zones are similar to the meridians used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and applying pressure to those points is similar to Acupressure.
The goal of a treatment is to bring relaxation and wellbeing and to encourage a beneficial effect not only for the feet, but also on other parts of the body. Through stimulation of these reflexology zones and acupressure points, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps to promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.
