What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to points on the feet and hands utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques, based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body. Stretch and movement techniques are utilized as "desserts" to provide relaxation to the foot.
In general terms, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress and increasing relaxation. The feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, and therefore are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body's equilibrium. As the pressure techniques are applied to the feet or hands we are interacting with the body's nervous system creating: relaxation, improved circulation, pain reduction, as well giving the benefits of touch.
Reflexology is a simple, effective, natural way reported to help overcome many common illnesses and ailments and enjoy a life of better quality of health. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help address many health problems in a natural way, as a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology should be considered an advance in the health field and should not be confused with a foot massage.I can do customised sessions for feet, hand or integrating all three (ears/scalp) ranging from 30-90 minutes.
