Reflexology is a focused pressure technique, usually directed at the hands or feet. It is based on the premise that there are zones & reflexes on different parts of the body which correspond to & are relative to all parts, glands & organs of the entire body. These reflexes & zones are stimulated by the reflexologist in a session.

unnamedWhen these reflexes are stimulated, the body’s natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones. A session seems to break-up the deposits, removing stress & activating a parasympathetic response in the body to enable the blockages to be released by a physiological change in the body. With stress removed & circulation enhanced, the body is allowed to return to a state of “homeostasis” (the automatic process that the body incorporates to bring it back to the normal state or balanced state).

Dating back to 2 500 BC, the oldest documentation of the use of reflexology has been found in Egypt.

Reflexology can be performed on everyone from the new born to the elderly. With stress being the leading cause (more than 80%) of all North American disease, Reflexology is surely a step in the right direction in working towards optimal health!
