Reflexology massage is believed that energy runs through the body in channels known as meridians and that massage of the feet stimulates these energy channels, promoting healing and relaxation.
The Reflexologist focuses on the entire pattern of the reflexology therapy, starting at the toes and working down the foot. A complete reflexology therapy session uses many different techniques and includes all of the points on both feet (and perhaps the hands and ears).
Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.
The most obvious effect of reflexology massage is that of stress reduction.
Reactions to reflexology treatment may include:
- Increased energy
- Enhanced sleep
- Relief from pain
- More mobile joints
As well as being a very pleasurable experience, Reflexology massage will help to decrease stress.
