Reflexology is an ancient technique that requires the use of thumbs, fingers, knuckles or other tools to stimulate the nerve endings/reflex points in the feet, hands and ears. The nervous system begins with the brain and travels down the body through the organs and terminates at the extremities and the ears. Reflexology focuses on stimulating these nerve endings to release emotional and physical stress in the organs and to bring about balance within the body. During a reflexology session, when the therapist presses and massages these points, she sends a signal to the body to release stress and tension that is being held in the tissues. This simple process helps the body repair itself to create balance and harmony. Reflexology is also great for supporting hormonal balance and overall wellbeing.
