Default

What Is Reflexology
An alternative form of medicine is reflexology. This practice involves putting pressure to the hands and feet with specific hand, finger and thumb techniques. There is no massage done with lotion or oil. There are reflex areas or zones that are targeted on the feet and the hands which can reach different tissues and organs of the body and stimulate the same. Such reflex areas are touched in such ways that physical changes are brought about in different parts of the body. However, it is a holistic approach for natural heath with no concrete evidence of such a practice helping any specific disorder.

The features of reflexology include the following:
• The underlying belief is that certain areas on the foot correspond to certain body parts or regions
• When these part are manipulated one can improve their health by modulating the flow of energy
• In reflexology the body is divided into ten vertical zones where five are on the left and the rest on the right
• Such a form of therapy can be complemented with medical treatments
