Reflexology Massage Therapy
Very much alike to acupressure principles, reflexology works with the body’s energy flow to invigorate self-healing and keep up the underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are “reflex” areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. For example:
The tips of the toes reflect the head
The heart and chest are around the ball of the foot
The liver, pancreas, and kidney are in the arch of the foot
Low back and intestines are towards the heel
Reflexology can help to clear any channels of blocked energy
Practitioners trust that applying pressure to these reflex areas can help health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways. Reflexology aids to break up toxins and urges the body to discharge them. Reflexology can be utilized on the feet and hands where your practitioner will connect areas that feel blocked and tight with specific organs and systems in the body. A Reflexologist utilizes delicate pressure on the hands and feet. For every individual the application and the impact of the therapy are unique.
