What is Reflexology?

 

Reflexology is a gentle complementary therapy that involves applying pressure to specific areas of the body (typically hands, feet, and ears) to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. It is based on the principle that these areas, known as reflex points, correspond to different organs, glands, and systems within the body. The reflexologist uses thumb and finger techniques of varying pressure during the treatment.

 

Through the application of pressure on these reflex points, reflexology therapy can relieve tension, improve circulation, and support the body’s efforts to function optimally. Reflexology can also promote emotional wellbeing.

Reflexology can help support optimal health by:

 

  • improving digestion

  • assisting to balance hormones

  • unblocking congestion and energy pathways

  • improving circulation

  • stimulating the immune and lymphatic system

  • helping to relieve pain and nerve impulses

  • eliminating waste and detox

  • relaxing and taking body out of “fight or flight" mode

 

Some of the common issues reflexologists address include:

 

IBS, constipation, PMS and reproductive issues, sleep disorders, anxiety and depression, headaches and migraines, cold and sinus issues, brain fog, low energy, high blood pressure, sluggishness, diabetes, injury, auto-immune disease, cancer , back pain, neck stiffness, muscle tension, sciatica, chronic pain, bladder infections, fluid retention, and lymphedema.
