Reflexology involves placing pressure on specific areas of the foot, in combination with massaging and stretching to improve health and well-being. It is the ideal therapy for those who are body-conscious as only the feet are exposed.
Deeply relaxing, reflexology is based on the belief that specific areas of the feet are directly connected to corresponding areas of the body. By applying pressure on these specific areas of the feet, positive changes in the linked areas can be realized. Oils or lotions can used to aid in the therapy and the feet are often covered in a blanket or towel when not being worked on to stop them from becoming cold or uncomfortable.
If you haven’t experienced a reflexology session yet, you’ll be amazed at how relaxed and invigorated your whole body can become simply from working on the feet.
Foot reflexology massage can also be therapeutic for those suffering from plantar fasciitis or ankle injuries.
If you enjoy the therapeutic benefits of foot reflexology, you should know that the benefits are compounded when reflexology massage is utilized on a regular routine.
