Putting a "spring" back into your step!
Reflexology is a non-invasive, natural therapy that treats the entire body by applying pressure to reflex areas located on the feet, hands, and ears. It is believed that these reflex areas correspond with the various organs, glands, and systems of the body. By applying this pressure, the practitioner can influence the corresponding area of the body, aiding the natural healing processes and, thereby, restoring balance. Treatments have been shown to reduce harmful stress and tension, as well as relieving pain and discomfort due to injury. Not only does Reflexology reduce physical, emotional, and psychological pain, the deep state of relaxation obtained during a Reflexology session protects the body from the harmful accumulative effects of stress. Chronic stress has been proven to cause a depletion of the body's immune system, which can lead to disease. It is for this reason reflexology is a viable preventative health care measure. Research has shown the specific techniques of Reflexology to be effective and beneficial in many ways.
