Alternative and complimentary methods of treatment used to promote healing, relieve stress, tension, aches and pains.
Traditionally it is believed that energy flows through channels in the body. When these channels become blocked or depleted, parts of the body are starved of energy and become diseased. Reflexology clears these channels and restores the free flow of energy. A more modern theory is that reflexology works through the nervouse system. There are 70000 nerve endings in the feet which connect through the spinal cord to all parts of the body.
By working on the nerve endings, reflexology stimulates the nervouse system back into normal functioning. Reflexotherapy promotes a sense of well-being and relaxation.
