What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a science and an art. Thousands of reflex points located on the feet, hands, and ears represent the body in miniature. By stimulating these nerve pathways, an electro-chemical is created to communicate and stimulate the nervous system. 

By reflexing points in the feet, ears, and hands, thousands of energy centers awakened by pressing on energy points. These reflex points connected to every function in the body, plus all energy pathways, including the meridians and chakras. Reflexology sends healing messages through reflex points to the peripheral nervous system, then to the central nervous system, and then to the brain. The brain recognizes where energy imbalances are and sends thousands of healing messages to that part of the body that needs healing. These messages rebalance the energy in the body and allow the body to heal.  

Reflexology is a preventive modality that eliminates stress and anxiety while encourages wellness. 

Is Reflexology another word for “massage”? 

Foot Reflexology generally misunderstood as a foot massage, but it is much more than that. Foot Reflexology is a scientific art based on the premise that the zones in the feet correspond to all body parts. Each specific point corresponds with a body function. By stimulating these points, blocked energy, mental and physical tensions, and built-up toxins release. Reflexology therapy can improve circulation, encourages lymphatic drainage, stimulates nerve pathways, and relaxes muscles. A certified Reflexologist with 200-300 hours of training knows foot anatomy, general physiology, and hands-on techniques, while a foot massage is just a massage, with no specific emphasis.
