Reflexology is the study of the reflex points on the feet and hands that correspond to each organ and system in the body. It suggests that healing energy flows from vital organs through channels in the body and terminate to form the reflex points of the feet and hands. When this energy is blocked by stress, tension, or congestion, disease occurs. By massaging and acupressure these reflex points and utilizing specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques, the person will feel relaxed, the circulation is improved, and the blockages are broken down. Additionally, the energy within the body is restored.
Time and time again, reflexology has been rediscovered, particularly in Asia and the East. This has led to the creation of environments where reflexology is practiced and accepted and allows practitioners, businesses, and researchers to thrive in this industry.
