This science can be traced back to Ancient Egypt.
Reflexology consists of a deep compression massage and relaxation technique, which stimulates the body’s own healing mechanism. By gentle encouragement via the hands or feet, the body balances itself.
The feet and hands have been likened to a mirror image of the whole body. Each foot has over 7,000 nerve endings, which relate to the internal structure of the body i.e. its organs and glands.
Calcium, which is circulated in the blood, is deposited at these nerve endings. This can cause blockage and imbalance, disturbing the internal functions of the body.
A reflexologist can detect imbalances in the body by manipulating certain points on the feet and hands. This pressure in turn sends a signal through the nervous system and brain. A message is then relayed to the areas in the body, which need to be addressed, and the body can begin to balance itself.
Elimination is made via the lymphatic system.
