Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet, hands and/or ears. It is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress.  Hand and foot massage reflexology is an alternative treatment which involves gently manipulating the feet to ease the discomfort for the person as a whole.

Reflexology is based on the principle that there are small and specific areas of innervations (reflex points) in the hands and feet that correspond to specific muscle groups or organs of the body. In this system, the nerve endings in the extremities provide a "map" of the rest of the body.  By stimulating the reflex points, it may help improve nerve and blood circulation, and restore the body to its natural state of equilibrium.  

Reflexology is a pleasant experience and recent studies support that reflexology therapy may help with:

  • stress                                                  
  • congestion
  • bedwetting
  • pain management
  • constipation
  • detoxification
  • carpal tunnel
  • aching feet
  • headaches or head tension
  • relaxing the nervous system, and more
