Reflexology is an alternative healing art based on a system of zones and reflex areas on the feet, hands or ears that relate to all organs and parts of the body. By applying pressure to the specific reflex areas, reflexology relaxes tension, removes blockages and improves circulation. This helps the body to normalize functions and heal in a natural way. Regular reflexology sessions would provide excellent maintenance for the body and is a great way to experience a deep form of relaxation!
Reflexology can be applied both to the hands and feet, but most reflexologists focus on the feet as they are typically more sensitive. There are about 7200 nerve endings in each foot, making it highly sensitive to touch. The nerve supply comes from the sciatic nerve passing from the spinal nerve through the buttock and branching down the back and side of each leg to the foot. Our feet are also richly supplied with blood vessels. However, since it is at the end of the body and does not have its own pump, it depends on muscular activity of the foot and leg to keep a good return flow of blood to the heart. You can help the circulation in your feet with regular exercise and by putting your feet higher than your heart as often as possible – at least once a day.

o Releases, relaxes or reduces tension and congestion in the body
