Reflexology is a completely safe form of therapy, as well as a relaxing experience. The purpose of a treatment is to normalize the body's functioning, to break down tension and alleviate stress, and to improve nerve functioning and blood supply throughout the body.
Reflexology is based on the principle that there are zones on the feet, hands, and ears that correspond to each part, organ and gland of the body. As you work the feet, hands or ears these zones will unblock so the body can heal itself. Each system of the body is enhanced including the nervous, circulatory, hormonal, lymphatic, digestive, and eliminative. The body is reflected in the feet and the hands. The left foot and hand reflects the left side of the body and all of the organs that are there. The right foot and hand reflects the right side of the body and all of the organs that would be found there. Reflexology sessions in general last from 30 minutes to an hour. It is a clothed session with only the removal of shoes and socks.
