What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is Natural, Alternative therapy

Reflexology may be defined as a practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands using thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oils, creams, or lotions. Based on a system of zones, that reflects an image of the body on the feet and hands which in turn effects the physical changes made in the body.

Using reflexology to restore the balance to the body, mind and spirit by means of the foot or hand is a rather strange concept but totally accurate. Many people have tried reflexology to address specific medical problems with overwhelmingly successful results. The reflex points in the feet and hands are all connected to various parts of the body's systems. It functions like a network of intricate connections flowing from one to the other. By using reflexology the experienced practitioner is able to pinpoint the cause of the problem and manipulate it through a succession of pressure points on the feet or palms of the hands. All these points work and respond to the sometimes light but mostly painful pressures on the feet and hands. Other methods but equally suitable forms of reflexology are walking on a pebble path, using foot massages that simulate reflexology movements, and using rollers. Surprisingly other simple tools like a golf ball can also be used as reflexology item though they are not as good as the original natural way of the thumb and finger.
