Reflexology—the science of involuntary response to stimuli of the foot—is a gentle healing art, not to be confused with body massage.
It is a specific pressure technique that works on precise reflex points on the foot that correspond with all body parts. The reflex areas are all over the feet—top, bottom, and sides— and form a mirror image of the body.
By working these areas, the three primary benefits are:
1. promotes balance and normalization of the body naturally;
2. reduces stress and brings about relaxation;
3. improves circulation and the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
When the body is profoundly relaxed, it seeks homeostasis or perfect balance, releases stress and toxins, and generally enables the body to work better to heal itself.
