Reflexology is relaxing and helps alleviate stress.
How It Works
Your hands and feet are maps of your body and reflect various organs and other functions. A therapist applies finger pressure to your feet, hands or ears to stimulate energy flow within the body. This heals the corresponding area of your body. Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. According to reflexologists, pressure on the reflex points also helps to balance the nervous system and stimulates the release of endorphins that help to reduce pain and stress.
Treatments may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress and anxiety, and enhance relaxation and sleep. In addition, this therapy may help you with headaches, constipation, PMS and pain relief.
