What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a holistic healing technique that relies on treating the feet as a reflection of the whole body.
Your feet are miniature maps of your body and by applying pressure to certain reflex points on your feet, corresponding areas of your body can be stimulated to enhance and assimilate the body’s healing mechanism. Through stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic systems, and by the release of toxins, reflexology promotes the body to heal itself.
