Reflexology therapies are natural therapeutic methods derived from this study based on the principle that there are reflexes in the body that map to other parts, glands, and organs of the body. A reflexologist knows how to stimulate the reflex points in order to bring about a response in the corresponding part of the body. The use of these reflex points helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology therapy can relieve tension, improve circulation, support the body’s efforts to function optimally.
Amongst the benefits that clients report are:
The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of “imbalance” and vital body systems can be blocked, preventing the body from functioning optimally. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural balance and facilitate healing. For each person, the application and the effect of the therapy are unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances and by working on these points, the Reflexology Therapist can release these blockages.
Reflexology is one of the safest and least invasive alternative therapeutic practices available. The World Health Organization deems it simple and easy to learn, economical, readily found, safe, and effective.
