Reflexology is akin to massage therapy. It is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion and is often described as an example of pseudoscience. By applying acupressure and massage like technique to those areas, the therapist can stimulate and promote specific bodily, organ, and muscular functions.
Reflexology can be beneficial in treating:
1. Stress and anxiety
2. Low energy levels
3. Irregular sleep patterns
4. Digestive problems
5. Back/shoulder/ neck pain
6. Respiratory problems
8. Toxin reduction in the body
9. Stimulates the immune system
10. Hormone imbalances
Reflexology re-vitalizes a tired body by promoting physical wellness and restoring a sense of emotional balance and well-being. Being a non-invasive treatment, reflexology can benefit all age groups.
