What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a specialist massage using specific thumb and finger hand techniques applying diﬀerent amounts of pressure to the feet.
It is based on the theory that the feet are a micro-system of the body and by applying pressure to specific parts of the feet you can have a diﬀerent eﬀect on the corresponding part of the body.
Reflexology can bring about a state of relaxation and help the body’s own healing process. Tender, sensitive or crunchy sensations on the feet can indicate that that corresponding area of your body is out of balance.
In the 1890s, British scientists found that nerves connect the skin and internal organs. They also found that the body’s entire nervous system tends to adjust to outside factors, including touch.
