What is reflexology?

Reflexology has been practised for thousands of years. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body. 

Applying pressure to these reflex areas, using the thumb, finger and hand will result in the reduction of stress which promotes physiological changes in the body.

What can reflexology treat?

What happens during a reflexology session?

The reflexologist will work on your feet, or hands if necessary, noting any problem areas.

You may experience some discomfort — this is an indication of congestion or imbalance in a corresponding part of the body. In general, the experience will be pleasant and relaxing.

It is extraordinary to think that the entire human body can correspond to particular zones and points of the feet, and that manipulation and massage of these can aid the psychophysical well being of an individual, maintaining health reinforcing the immune system and favor the fluid and dynamic mind-body exchange that is the psychosomatic basis of our entire being.
The equilibrium of all levels and systems of the organism, healing and a state of wellness are the consequences of the immediate effects of massage on the nervous system and on the circulation of vital energy within our body. But reflexology goes into the unexplored areas of the psyche and liberates mental energy held back by emotional blocks. Reflexology is also very relaxing and pleasant, a series of sessions is aimed at normalizing the function of the organism, of relieving tension and stress and of improving the action of the nervous system and the circulation of the blood thus helping the organism to more rapidly eliminate the toxins which accumulate in the liver, kidneys or intestine and prevent them reaching a dangerous level. Reflexology also helps control the perception of pain by stimulating the hypothalamus to secrete endorphins - analgesics produced naturally by the body - which are then released into the blood.

However reflexology works best when used to bring balance and harmony to the organism as a whole rather than being used to treat particular problems. In this way it can improve the functioning of an organism making the physiological process of healing more rapid and efficient.
