Reflexology is the application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques.
Reflex points in hands, and feet correspond to different body organs and systems and that working on them has a beneficial effect on the person’s health. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the meridians powerful “shu” points are located on the hands and feet and the manual stimulation of these can be very beneficial for a variety of ailments.
Quite simply by applying manual pressure on hands, feet and ears, on meridian points we can assist the body to release tension, reduce pain, and increase optimal functions and range of motion.
This type of treatment can help alleviate pain, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and hormonal or digestive challenges through focusing on body reflex in areas normally not associated with these symptoms. Reflex areas can be found on the feet, ears, head, and face. This type of treatment helps to restore the body’s natural balance and release blockages that can occur from periods of illness, pain or stress.
According to the Reflexology Association of Canada, “Reflexology is one of the safest and least invasive alternative therapeutic practices available.” – and of course we don’t disagree!
