Reflexology is based on the premise that there are reflex points in the feet that correspond to every part, organ and gland of the body via reflexes. Through manual pressure and stimulation of these reflexes, the body is assisted to return to natural functioning. In the process endorphins (natural pain-killers) are released, para-sympathetic relaxation of the nervous system takes place, increased blood and lymphatic circulation results in increases in oxygen and immune levels all of which helps to restore balance to all the systems of the body.
It is not required to have a condition to benefit from reflexology: it’s a wonderful way to feel better and gain a sense of health and well-being. People usually feel a sense of inner calm and more energy following as a result of their sessions.
