What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an ancient healing art that involves the application of pressure to specific points on the feet, hands, or ears. These points, known as reflex areas, are believed to correspond to different organs, systems, and parts of the body. By stimulating these reflex points, reflexologists aim to promote natural healing, reduce stress, and restore balance throughout the body.
Benefits of Reflexology
Holistic Approach: Reflexology views the body as a whole, interconnected system. By working on specific reflex points, practitioners seek to harmonize the body’s various functions and promote overall balance.
Energy Flow: Reflexologists believe that vital energy, or life force, flows through pathways in the body. By applying pressure to reflex points, they aim to release blockages and enhance the flow of energy, supporting the body’s natural healing processes.
Relaxation Response: Reflexology induces a deep state of relaxation, which can help alleviate stress and tension. The body’s relaxation response is thought to trigger various physiological changes, promoting a sense of calm and well-being.
Promotion of Circulation: The stimulation of reflex points is believed to improve blood and lymphatic circulation, facilitating the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells and the removal of toxins.
