What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-invasive and effective healthcare modality based on the principle that there are reflex points throughout the feet, hands, and outer ears that correspond to every system, organ, and gland in our bodies.
When these points are accessed using specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques, nerve pathways are stimulated, circulation is increased, and congestion is cleared, allowing the body to relax and resume a natural state of balance, or homeostasis.
Clients commonly experience states of profound relaxation and tranquility, and often report decreased pain, improved health, and other benefits after receiving reflexology.
Already a popular form of healthcare in many other countries, awareness of reflexology is rapidly expanding in the United States. Though it is not yet accepted by most insurance policies, reflexology is recognized as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine by the National Institutes of Health under the umbrella of manipulative and body-based therapies.
Benefits of Reflexology May Include:
- Deep Relaxation
- Stress Reduction
- Increased Circulation
- Pain Reduction or Elimination
- Increased Mobility
- Accelerated Self-healing
- Natural Detoxification
- Restored Healthy Internal Balance
- Revitalized Energy
- Increased Sense of Well-being
Reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe or claim to heal clients. Reflexology facilitates the return of a natural state
of balance within the body through relaxation, nerve stimulation and improved circulation.
