Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands, feet and ears, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.
Reflexology in practice as depicted on the Egyptian tomb of Ankmahor in 2350 BC.
1. Promotes relaxation and release of tension.
2. Improves circulation (lymphatic and cardiovascular), drainage and elimination.
3. Maintains or re-establishes homeostasis, (helps the body to normalize itself naturally, without adverse effects).
