Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work affects a physical change to the body.
Our feet are often overlooked and undervalued yet they are critical in our every day life. We stuff them into high heels, tight ski boots, work all day on our feet sometimes or simply play hard. They get tight, sore, callused, bruised and sometimes even crippled. Living with tense feet causes imbalances walking and therefore within the body. A little foot TLC is a gift to your entire being.
Same goes for our hands. All you need to do is sprain a finger and we are reminded how much our hands do for us every day and how a little hand TLC can relax us and release not only our hand stress but overall stresses and imbalances can be affected.
Reflexology is an easy gateway to human touch for those who don’t enjoy a full allover massage.
