Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves applying pressure to specific areas of the feet. These areas, known as reflex points, correspond to different organs and systems in the body. By applying pressure to these points, reflexologists aim to promote healing and restore balance in the body. Reflexology is a non-invasive and relaxing treatment that can be beneficial for a range of conditions. Some of the reported benefits of reflexology include pain relief, improved circulation, reduced stress and anxiety, enhanced immune function, and improved digestion.
During a reflexology session, the therapist will use their hands to apply pressure to specific points on the feet. The pressure applied can range from gentle to firm, and may be combined with other techniques such as massage or stretching.
