If you are tired, in pain, depressed, have anxiety, or your body needs to be balanced due to everyday stresses; then reflexology may be what you need. Reflexology is the study of a scientific art, based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet, hands, ears, and face which correspond to all parts of the body. The physical act of applying specific pressures using thumb, finger, and the hand techniques result in stress reduction which causes a physiological change in the body. Reflexology has a positive impact on specific organs, relaxation, and pain reduction. Cancer patients that have regular reflexology sessions find a decrease in depression, fatigue, tension, and alleviation of post-operative pain and anxiety.
How does reflexology work? There is an anatomical reflection. Everything about a person is reflected in perfectly distinguishable maps located in the feet, hands, ears, and face. A certified professional reflexologist looks for noted structure, frequency, color changes, and other abnormalities particular to each individual.
