The main concept of Reflexology is that the feet mirror the body. When a Reflexologist works on someone’s feet the practitioner is not treating for a specific condition, such as foot pain. By working the whole foot the practitioner is encouraging the body’s natural healing abilities to address imbalances throughout the entire body.
Each foot has 7,000 – 7,200 nerve endings, each of these being a reflex point that can be traced to every organ, gland and system in the body. Applying pressure to these reflexes using a gentle on-off pressure may influence the state of the body in many ways.
- Reflexology promotes balance and normalization of the body naturally
- Reflexology reduces stress and brings about relaxation
- Reflexology stimulates circulation and the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells
