Reflexology is a wonderful healing technique
The theory behind reflexology is that there are “reflex points” in the hands and feet that relate to specific organs and glands in the body. Practitioners believe that stimulating those reflex points promotes health in the corresponding organ via the body’s energetic pathways. The pressure stimulates the related body regions or organs to promote healing. The treatment is also used to stimulate circulation, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.
Reflexology is also an excellent diagnostic tool as the hands and feet are essentially the “maps of the body”. There are informative books and websites to educate yourself on the proper techniques for practicing hand and foot reflexology.
