A natural therapy dating back thousands of years, the ancient practice of reflexology has evolved in many ways, but the basic principles and concepts behind it still provide a strong foundation for its worldwide practice. Originating from China, reflexology uses specific energy zones on the feet, manipulating them through the application of pressure in some 7,200 nerve endings in the feet to stimulate various reflex areas in the body. This provides relief for different illnesses, while also energizing the entire body system. Stimulating reflex areas in the heart, lungs, eyes, ears, and liver brings about balance and homeostasis in the entire system. When reflexes in different areas of the feet are worked, nerve impulses travel through the nerve pathways and into the associated body parts, increasing circulation, and improving metabolism.

This simple and non-invasive practice helps reach homeostasis in the body. It is often referred to as a natural therapy that offers holistic effects in the body's wellbeing. A lot of people use reflexology as a preventive health measure, as it offers useful diagnostic value. The method is also simple and very safe, as it causes no side effects compared with other massage systems. Nevertheless, reflexology can be used in combination with other massages to promote even better holistic healing. In addition to its diagnostic capabilities, this therapy also provides relaxation and improves nerve supply and blood circulation.

There are basic reflexology theories currently being researched in connection with the relationship between the feet and the body. This includes:

1. Blood and supply theory – When the body is tense, it presses on the arteries, which causes sluggishness in circulation. This causes toxins that should naturally be excreted to crystallise and be deposited in the hands and feet, in turn blocking nerve impulses. Reflexology aids in breaking down these crystals so they can go into the blood stream for natural excretion, relieving pain and soreness in corresponding parts of the body. 2. Lymph theory – Manipulation of reflex areas can enhance lymph vessels and restore the body's natural chemical balance. 3. Nerve simulation theory –Pressure on the reflex points transmits neurological messages to the brain, causing the body to mobilise repair. 4. Counter irritation theory – The human body has a natural ability to speed up its repair when an irritation or insult to its equilibrium is introduced through reflex irritation.

Various massage clinics can provide you with these kinds of treatments, but there is nothing more convenient than having an on-call, mobile therapist at your disposal whenever you are in need of a relaxing reflexology, aromatherapy, or deep tissue massage.
