What is Reflexology?

An alternative medical practice, focussing on the feet, hands and outer ears.

Reflexology is an alternative medical practice, sometimes called 'zone therapy'. Reflexology us a practice that maps the whole body to points on the hands, feet and outer ears. Reflexology uses the application of pressure to points on the hands, feet and ears which correlate to parts of the whole body. Reflexologists use their thumb, fingers, and other massage techniques to press and activate different parts. The use of oil or lotion is not consistent in Reflexology, making it an excellent treatment for those with allergies. 

Reflexology practitioners subscribe to the teaching philosophy that by pressing specific points on the areas described above stimulates energy and releases blockages elsewhere in the body that cause pain or illness.
