What is reflexology:
There are over 7000 nerves in our feet.
Every part of the body is interconnected, therefore, when there is an imbalance in one area it leads to an imbalance in another.
For the body to run smoothly it strives to maintain a state of homeostasis.
The human body is highly intelligent and has a remarkable built-in self-correcting system that can restore health to imbalanced areas.
The goal of reflexology is to re-educate and re-condition the nerves so that the body can heal itself by using this self-correcting system.
Reflexology, by stimulating various reflex points on the feet, can help unblock the energy in these 7000 nerve endings, so creating a relaxation in the muscles throughout the body.
It treats the feet as a microcosm of the entire body, based on the theory that there are reflex zones in the feet, which correspond to all the glands, organs and systems of the body.
According to Bill Flocco, Director of the American Academy of Reflexology in California,
“Reflexology is a powerful natural health science that studies the relationship of the reflex areas in the feet, hands and the ears to the rest of the body so that these areas can be worked on with the fingers and thumbs in a manner that will lead to improved health and the maintenance of good health”
