Reflexology is a complementary therapy in which pressure is applied to specific points on the feet and hands in order to rebalance the body. In Chinese medicine, it is believed that different body parts correspond with different pressure points on the feet and hands. Reflexologists use maps of these points in the feet and hands to determine where they should apply pressure. Reflexologists believe that applying pressure to these parts offers a range of health benefits.
In traditional Chinese medicine reflexology works on the belief qi (chi) flows through each person and when a person is stressed, their body blocks the qi. This causes an imbalance in the body that can lead to illness. Reflexology treatment aims to keep the qi flowing through the body, keeping it balanced and disease free. They believe their touch sends energy flowing through a person’s body until it reaches the area in need of healing.
Others believe that a reflexologist’s touch may help to calm the central nervous system, promoting relaxation and other benefits just like any form of massage. Some believe that reflexology can reduce pain through calming touch, which may help to improve someone’s mood and reduce stress.
Reflexology has been linked, albeit not scientifically, to many potential benefits. These include a reduction in stress and anxiety, reduction in pain, better mood and improved general well-being.
