What Is Reflexology?

Your hands, feet and ears have maps of reflex points that correspond to every part of your body. Reflexology is a form of manipulation of the pressure points inside those maps to help relax, stimulate and reduce stress to organs, glands, and other parts of the body.

The earliest evidence of a similar method to reflexology being used dates back to 2500BC and was found in a tomb belonging to Ankhmahor in Saqqara.

Reflexology has been shown to be helpful in treating many conditions, a few examples including:

  • Fertility
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Back pain
  • Migraine
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep disorders
  • Sports injuries
  • Digestive disorder
  • Stress related conditions

Whether you have a particular health problem or you are just looking for a way to relieve tension, reflexology could be the answer and can give you an intense sense of well being and tranquillity.
