Reflexology works on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body.
It is an excellent therapy to:
- relieve stress and tension
- improve blood supply and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses
- help the body restore homeostasis/balance to all systems
The entire body is mapped out on the feet and when a Therapeutic Reflexologist uses a trained technique on a specific area, they are using their knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology in order to bring balance and healing to each system.
It is important to ensure that you find a Therapeutic Reflexologist, registered with the Allied Health Professions Council of SA as a Therapeutic Reflexologist and not someone who is only qualifed to give a relaxation session using reflexology.
