What is Reflexology? Reflexology is a pressure therapy involving the feet. It revolves around the understanding that there are reflex points on the feet, that relate to the structure and function of all parts of the body. Applying pressure to these reflexes using a gentle on-off pressure may influence the state of the body in many ways. For example, reflexology has been found to reduce stress and tension, relieve pain, improve bodily functions and generally restore the body to a better state, so improving physical well-being.
The way in which a reflexology treatment achieves its sometimes startling results has not yet been fully scientifically establshed. Irrespective of how it’s actually achieved reflexology is thought, in many cases, to influence the functioning of the body.
It has been shown to...
relieve stress and tension while having a deeply relaxing effect over the whole body
improve circulation, which increases the efficiency of all organs and cells
help to remove congestion
be an allergy relief - a natural alternative to medicine (especially good throughout pregnancy**)
help with acne, asthma and psoriasis
promote the enjoyment of continuous good health and vitality
The fact that reflexology is capable of inducing a state of deep mental and physical relaxation may, in itself, provide a favourable environment in which healing can take place. Also, the psychological benefits of being involved in a one-to-one treatment involving physical contact should not be overlooked.
As well as being used to help relieve specific disorders, reflexology may also be used to maintain the efficiency of the body. It may also be used to maintain harmony in the body. Irrespective of the state of the body, it is highly unlikely that a reflexology treatment will do any harm. Reflexology is a very safe treatment with very few contra-indications or precautions to consider. There is no limit to the number of treatments that could be carried out – even daily is acceptable. All ages can benefit, from very young babies to the elderly.
The origins of reflexology can be traced back many thousands of years. Many civilisations and cultures have used this ancient form of healing throughout history. The main principle of reflexology that has evolved with time and research is that the feet mirror the body.
