Effective and completely safe, reflexology is simple to understand and easy to practice.
Top in the list of benefits of reflexology is that it helps in curing problems related to the body in a natural way without side effects.
No matter where you experience discomfort, there is a reflex point on your hands and feet where pressure can be applied to relieve the symptoms.
In reflexology, points and areas on the feet, hands and ears correspond to specific organs, bones and other parts of the body.
Reflexologists access these points to affect organs and systems throughout the entire body.
To represent how the body systems correspond to one another, they use reflexology charts.
A good example is the reflexology chart on the feet. Each foot represents a vertical half of the body:
- The left foot corresponds to the left side of the body and all the organs, valves, etc.
- The right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and all the organs found there. For example, the liver is on the right side of the body, therefore the corresponding reflex area is found on the right foot.
Some people confuse reflexology with acupuncture, but there is a big difference between them. Acupuncture is performed using needles, whereas in reflexology they are not needed.
Having a reflexology treatment is a great way to pamper yourself and it can be used as a safe, non-invasive relaxation therapy. Any person can do reflexology massages whether sitting in the office, while travelling or during free time.
