Reflexology therapy is a natural therapeutic method derived from the study based on the principle that there are reflexes in the body that connect to all parts of the body. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology therapy can improve circulation, relieve tension and support the body’s efforts to function at it’s best.
Some of the benefits that clients report are:
• Reduced stress
• Improved relaxation
• Released tension
• Decreased pain
• Improved body function
• Enhanced wellness
• Increased strength
• Increased mobility
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.
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.
