This is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the hands and feet that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. The application of systematic pressure, using the thumb and fingers, to specific reflex points on the hands and feet, releases congestion and promotes the flow of energy and aims to treat the person with a view to alleviating physical and emotional symptoms. This treatment focuses on stimulating particular pressure points on the feet (or hands) which are believed to be connected by, energy pathways, to corresponding organs and glands of the body.
Doing this helps to create balance in the body and all the systems, relieving any sluggishness or blockages. Reflexology provides an incredible way to relax, de-stress and release all those built up tension and toxins that can lead to insomnia, migraines, sinus problems, hormonal imbalances, breathing disorders, digestive irregularities, circulatory and back problems.
