WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is one of the safest and least invasive alternative therapeutic practices available.
Reflexology is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet or hands.
Reflexology rests on the ancient Chinese belief in qi (pronounced “chee”), or “vital energy.” According to this belief, qi flows through each person. When a person feels stressed, their body blocks qi.
This can cause an imbalance in the body that leads to illness. Reflexology aims to keep qi flowing through the body, keeping it balanced and disease free. In Chinese medicine, different body parts correspond with acupuncture pressure points on the body. Reflexologists use maps of these points in the feet, hands, and ears to determine where they should apply pressure. They believe their touch sends energy flowing through a person’s body until it reaches the area in need of healing.
Reflexology helps to manage many common ailments:
Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS, sinusitis, musculoskeletal pain, insomnia, anxiety, stress and hormonal and digestive issues.
