Reflexology works to balance the body through the nervous system connection to the hands, feet, face and ears and offers a gentler wellness practice to assist with balancing body, mind, and spirit. For those who are unable or do not desire manipulation of the body tissues, reflexology is a great option.
According to the Reflexology Association of America, [r]eflexology, [is] an integrative health practice, [that] maps a reflection of the body predominately on the feet, hands and outer ears. It uses unique manual techniques to deliver pressure to neural pathways assisting the body to function optimally.
As with therapeutic massage, positive effects of reflexology accumulate over time. Each person’s needs are unique and may include more sessions at the beginning and then taper off to a maintenance schedule of one session every three weeks or one session monthly.
