Reflexology is a
touch therapy using thumb, finger and hand techniques. Reflexologists believe
that the feet mirror the body. All organs, systems and glands of the body can
be mapped onto areas of the feet or hands called reflex points. A reflexologist
knows how to stimulate the reflex points in order to bring about a response in
the corresponding part of the body.
Reflexology is based
on the ancient Chinese theory that energy is flowing all around our bodies. If
the energy can flow freely then we are balanced and healthy. If the energy is
obstructed, illness may result. By stimulating these reflex points we interact
with the bodys nervous system so creating relaxation, improved circulation,
exercise of the nervous system and the benefits of touch help work towards
