Reflexology is a science that is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, ears, and other body surface areas that correspond to organs, glands and other body parts. The practice of foot reflexology involves the use of the fingers and thumb to exert pressure on the reflexes of the feet, as a form of acupressure. Foot reflexology is a gentle yet powerful way to help many conditions. It quickly induces a feeling of deep relaxation which helps to reduce anxiety and stress. By relaxing the body, and improving blood and nerve supply,reflexology helps to treat many imbalances, whether hormonal, digestive, reproductive or circulatory.
