Reflexology is a therapy that treats the feet in order to balance the whole body. Its main principle is to massage and apply pressure to parts of the feet known as reflex areas. The feet and hands are like a mini map of the body’s anatomy. The aim is to stimulate the body’s own healing processes in order to keep it in balance (Homeostasis).
Reflexology is a holistic therapy, which means the whole person is treated. It encourages both relaxation and stimulation. By applying pressure to parts of the feet, the reflexologist aims to benefit not only the feet but the rest of the body as well.
