Reflexology is a system of massage based on the theory that there are reflex points on the hands, feet, ears and head linked to every part of the body and used to relieve tension, pain and heal illness. As pressure is placed on certain areas the corresponding organ or tissue reacts benefitting the person’s health.
According to the Mayo Clinic Website: “Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer.”
Reflexologists refer to charts to guide them where best to apply pressure for specific health issues. There are head, foot, hand and ear charts. Your practitioner may use balls, wood,rubber bands or crystals to increase the pressure.
Reflexology has been used to alleviate stress, treat chronic pain, and symptoms of diabetes, asthma and cancer.
If you are uncomfortable with full-body massage therapy, Reflexology is a wonderful alternative.
