What exactly is foot reflexology, and how can it help me?
Reflexology is the study of reflexes. Beyond the feel-good effects of the treatment itself, reflexology goes deeper than the skin and the muscles, by working on reflex points on the foot that map to other parts, glands, and organs in the body.
If sensitivity or tenderness is experienced when certain areas of the foot are worked on, it usually indicates an imbalance within the body. Reflexology can help improve these imbalances by moving the flow of blood, and as a result, increase nerve impulses to ultimately improve overall health. In addition to manipulating the pressure points on the foot, reflexologists sometimes work on the hands or ears to trigger relaxation as well.
Reflexology is used to treat everything from headaches to stomach issues. Some of the more common ailments seen by reflexologists include:
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Digestive issues
