Reflexology is a gentle non invasive complementary modality that is based on an ancient science and its principle that there are reflexes (a microscopic representation of the body parts) in the feet, hands and outer ears.
By properly working on these reflexes, many health problems can be helped in a natural way.
Reflexology is known to reduce stress, improve circulation, promote balance and relaxation. It works through the nervous, electrical, chemical and magnetic systems of the body promoting balance for Body, Mind, and Soul.
HOW DOES REFLEXOLOGY WORK?
A reflex is an involuntary response to a stimulus. When the reflexes are stimulated, an involuntary response is elicited in organs and glands connected by energy pathways to these specific reflexes.
Reflexologist trigger the reflexes using specific thumb and finger techniques. Imagine these impulses on the reflexes as channels of energy that connect the feet, hands and ears to the rest of the body.
The body is a dynamic energy field. For optimum functioning, energy must flow uninterrupted. Reflexology opens up these energy pathways, energizing the physical, emotional, energetic and mental aspects of the body.
WHAT REFLEXOLOGY DOES
Relieves stress and tension
Improves circulation and lymphatic flow
Gently encourages an overactive or under-active body back to balance
Enhances the immune system

REFLEXOLOGY DEFINITION ACCORDING TO THE LEADING AGENCIES IN THE USA:
Reflexology is a protocol of manual techniques, such as thumb and finger-walking, hook and backup and rotating-on-a-point, applied to specific reflex areas predominantly on the feet and hands. These techniques stimulate the complex neural pathways linking body systems, supporting the body's efforts to function optimally. The effectiveness of reflexology is recognized worldwide by various national health institutions and the public at large as a distinct complementary practice within the holistic health field.
