What is Reflexology and how does it work?

Reflexology historically was found in many cultures.  China, India, Egypt, and Europe.  Dr. William Fitzgerald is credited with being the father on modern Reflexology.  Reflexology is a focused pressure technique, directed to the feet.  It is based on the theory that there are zones and reflexes on the foot which correspond to and are relative to all parts, glands and organs.

 

When the reflexes are stimulated, the body's natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones.  Manipulating specific reflexes removes stress, activating a parasympatheic (nervous system) response in the body to enable the blockages to be release by a physiological change in the body.  With stress removed and circulation enhanced, the body is allowed to return to a state of homeostasis.  Homeostasis is the "automatic" process that the body incoroporates to bring it back to the "normal" state. 

 

Reflexology sessions are for people of all ages, from the newborn to the elderly, for a general tune-up or for a chronically ill body.  The vast majority of people usually realize the benefits of reducing stress, which in turn minimizes physical symptoms.  Reflexology in conjunction with other forms of therapies complements ongoing medical treatments. 

 

"I believe, that you owe it to yourself to try a session!  With removal of stress and tension, enhancing your circulation, your nervous system will work to restore homeostasis of all your parts, glands and organs.  You deserve to have balance in your life!"   ...Laura
