Health benefits of reflexology

Updated: Aug 4



The most used and neglected part of the body is our feet. They are always in motion and over time can make us miserable with annoying pain and discomfort.

Reflexology foot massages relieve built up tension. Adding Reflexology sessions to your personal health and wellness plan will advance your efforts to live a healthier and less stressed lifestyle.




What Is Reflexology?



Reflexology is a type of therapy that uses gentle pressure on specific points on your feet. A reflexologist’s application of pressure to the feet sends a calming message from peripheral nerves to the central nervous system, which then signals the body to adjust the level of tension. Reflexology eases stress, and that helps your body work better.



The way reflexology connects spots on the outside of your body to the inside is a bit like acupuncture and acupressure. But those therapies use points all over your body, not just on your feet.


Reflexology is complementary to medical treatments. It can be done alongside traditional care, but it’s not an alternative to it.
