What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is the therapeutic application of specialized pressure techniques to the hands, feet or ears to stimulate specific reflex areas that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. The intention of this massage is to produce a beneficial response in all parts of the body. These non-invasive, manual techniques stimulate pressure sensors along the body’s meridians via the central nervous system, triggering a relaxation response which allows your body to function optimally and begin to heal itself. Reflexology encourages good health, aids the lymphatic system to eliminate accumulated toxins, promotes relaxation, eases pain, helps to prevent disease and generally improves quality of life for everyone from newborn to elderly.
Research as well as personal success stories demonstrate that Reflexology can create a positive change in the body thus improving the functioning of virtually every part, gland and organ and therefore making a positive difference in how we age.
Reflexology research has proven that the specialized pressure point massage as provided by qualified practitioners in reflexology sessions are safe for everyone and achieve positive results, improves body function, and enhances the effectiveness of traditional medication, homeopathy, Chiropractic, Reiki, physiotherapy, etc.
