Reflexology is the Application of Appropriate Pressure to Specific Points and Areas on the Feet, Hands, or Ears. Reflexologists believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person's general health. For example, Reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder point. When a Reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it affects bladder functioning.
It is a very powerful and simple practice to get instant relief from pain. It improves blood circulation and helps in all problems related to nerves. It is part of Marma Therapy and covers the whole body. Reflexology is beneficial for restoring balance and harmony in the body and releasing tension. It can help facilitate a deep state of relaxation, calm the emotions, and produce a serene mind.
Many people describe a profound sense of relaxation and increased energy following their session. In addition, specific studies have shown that Reflexology can reduce pain and anxiety, decrease premenstrual symptoms, and reduce fatigue and insomnia.
