Reflexology is a type of therapy that uses pressure to specific points on the feet and/or hands.
The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.
One of the most known and proven benefits of reflexology is improvement in circulation. It means that blood and oxygen are distributed throughout the different parts of the body more efficiently. Because of proper oxygenation, the vital organ systems also perform properly which is essential in maintaining an overall health. Through the application of reflexology technique, neural pathways are being stimulated, allowing free flow of energy. Thus, a more relaxed state is realised. Moreover, through the same process, stress and anxiety are eliminated as well, leading to a more positive mental health.
