The feet have over 7200 nerve endings, all capable of relaying electrical messages to the various connections and synapses throughout the body.
Reflexologists believe that the feet mirror the body. All organs, systems and glands of the body can be mapped onto areas of the feet called reflex points.
A reflexologist knows how to stimulate the reflex points in order to bring about a response in the corresponding part of the body. Reflexology is based on the ancient Chinese theory that energy is flowing all around our body. If the energy can flow freely then we are balanced and healthy. If the energy is obstructed an illness may result.
Reflexology is a unique method of massage using the thumb and fingers on these reflex points. Stimulating the reflexes initiates a series of messages sent throughout the body allowing energy to flow freely enabling the body to regulate itself and promotes self-healing.
