What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an alternative medicine or pseudoscience done by using manual techniques and applying pressure to feet, hands, or ears at specific reflex points or zones. It brings about physiological and psychological normalization of the total body. The reflexology theory believes that the systematic zones and reflex areas on feet and hands reflects different parts of the body and work done on such areas will have physical effects to the body.
Reflexology as a frequent treatment
We live in a rushed modern society where the high paced and demanding lifestyle makes us vulnerable to tension, anxiety and fear. Our bodies are stressed and exhausted under such conditions. Reflexology expels the suppressed emotions of stress, relaxing both our bodies and our minds. It helps to alleviate the effects of stress by inducing deep relaxation. We recommend an 1 hour reflexology session each week to keep our bodies in best shape.
How does reflexology work
The important step to a full understanding of reflexology techniques is an appreciation of the pressure points and zones and how they relate to the body. The following reflexology diagram shows the map of points and zones.
