Reflexology is the systematic and scientific application of gentle pressure using specific thumb and finger techniques on the hands, feet and face on the nerve endings of reflexes to promote homeostasis thus stimulating the body’s own healing system. Each reflex point relates to various organs, glands and body parts and has an effect on their function. A calming message is sent from the extremities to the central nervous system, inviting the body to adjust tension levels, increase blood supply and therefore oxygen and nutrients, to nourish and restore equilibrium. All the systems of the body are worked on the feet, musculoskeletal, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, nervous, and lymphatic.
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment and some people even fall asleep during treatment, however you may feel some tenderness in certain areas corresponding to parts of the body which are out of balance, but this is usually momentarily. Reflexology isn't “ticklish”, and pressure can range from a feather like touch, ideal for babies and those with extremely sensitive feet, to a firm pressure for individuals who prefer a much deeper treatment.
