Reflexology stimulates the reflex areas of the feet and hands that correspond to the glands, organs and other parts of the body. Applying pressure to the extremities releases congestion and restores the body to a harmonious state.
This holistic method of healing assists in preventing the accumulation of tension in the body, which can lead to pain or discomfort. The process clears toxins stored in the body and boosts circulation.
The treatment has roots to ancient Egypt and was introduced to the United States by Eunice Ingham during the early 20th century. Physicians around the world prescribe using reflexology in conjunction with traditional medicine to facilitate healing.
