What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a method of promoting wellness and fighting disease through the application of pressure, sometimes on the hands and ears, but most commonly on the feet. It is based on the premise that channels of energy flow from the different parts of the body to corresponding areas on the feet. When those channels of energy become blocked by physical or mental stress, we become ill. By applying pressure to the reflex points on the feet, we clear the blockages and promote healthy functioning in the corresponding organ or system in the body.

One of the factors that makes reflexology such an effective treatment is that anybody can receive it, from pregnant women and newborn babies to elderly people and those with disabilities. It offers numerous benefits, including the following:
