Reflexology is an ancient Oriental technique that enhances the flow of energy and circulation,and helps to restore harmony and balance in our physiology.
The whole body is reflected in the feet, hands and ears. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory base, the energy in these areas is tied to specific “meridians” and organs. As the practice developed in the United States, the areas of the feet, hands, and ears were tied to Neurological dermatomes, ( an area of skin that is mainly supplied by a single spinal nerve), for the theoretical explanation of Reflexology function and effectiveness. With firm fingertip pressure application to the feet, hands and ears, the energy pathways are unblocked and the body symptomatology resolves. In other words, it helps the body to facilitate its own healing.
