Reflexology is an holistic therapy with links to Traditional Chinese Medicine in which the feet are used to treat the whole body.
In reflexology the body is divided into zones. The feet are divided into the same zones enabling the whole body, including the organs to be mapped onto the feet. Mapping the body onto the feet in this way enables a reflexologist, by working the whole of both feet, to work on the whole body, relieving congestion along nerve pathways. In addition, it is possible to focus attention on specific organs/parts of the body.
It is believed that one of the primary benefits of Reflexology is relaxation, which in turn decreases stress levels and levels of stress hormones in the body allowing the body to heal itself and restore balance.
