It is estimated that 70% of all health disorders can be related to stress and nerve tension. Good circulation is crucial for the nourishment of cells and elimination of toxins. If the body is tense, this circulation is inhibited; energy blockages can result, and imbalances in the body may occur. If these imbalances are not resolved then illness can develop.
By inducing a state of deep relaxation, reflexology can help reduce tension and encourage the body to release the blockages that are causing imbalance, thus promoting healing.
What is Reflexology and how can it help?
Reflexology is a non-invasive, holistic therapy, which involves a specific pressure technique of massage that uses thumbs and fingers to stimulate particular points on the feet or hands. Reflexology is based on the theory that the feet and hands represent a map of the body’s organs, glands and tissues in miniature, and by stimulating these specific points, called reflex points, the practitioner is able to stimulate the corresponding organs, systems and structures within the entire body.
