Reflexology is a form of natural healing which has been practiced for centuries. It is based upon the principle that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet and hands, also known as nerve endings, which relate to every gland, organ, and part of the body. The practitioner applies pressure with thumb and fingers to these reflex points. It gently and effectively maintains health while building up the body's immunity and resistance to disease.
It is an excellent antidote to stress and therefore eases stress related conditions. Relaxation is pre-requisite for health. Reflexology is capable of inducing the alpha state of relaxation, which clears the mind and opens it to tranquility. It is the most serene level at which healing can effectively take place.
