Reflexology Massage uses various touch techniques on specific points of the feet and hands to normalize body function, restore energy throughout the body, and maintain optimum health. Reflexology practitioners theorize that there are major reflex points in the hands and feet corresponding to each organ and major muscle group in the body. Pressure on these points releases restricted energy flow and improves blood supply. Since the extremities have a rich supply of nerve endings, stimulation to these points can have far-reaching effects, including release of endorphins into the bloodstream, providing pain relief and a feeling of well-being.
Clients who benefit from reflexology report feelings of deep relaxation and reduction or elimination of pain. Circulation is improved, resulting in increased oxygen and nutrient supplies to the brain and body. Detoxification is promoted, as well as a normalization of the functions of the organs, glands, and structures of the body.
