Reflexology is a natural health science, used for centuries, to “de-stress” the body. Reflexology is known best for balancing hundreds of emotional and physical stress-induced symptoms. Anxiety, depression, mental fatigue, neck, shoulder, lower back pain, joint discomfort, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, etc…. to name a few.
Reflexology is based on the principle that there are over 7,000 nerve endings in the feet alone, that are pathways to the nervous system in the body and branch out to every organ, tissue, muscle and gland in the body. Through application of pressure techniques on these reflexes a stimulus goes through the nervous system, releasing blockages caused by stress. Therefore, Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the corresponding areas of the body.
