After a long, stressful at work reflexology sounds like the perfect ending, doesn’t it?
Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet, hands, and ears. Many people think that reflexology is just another word for foot massage, but it is much more than that.
Beyond the relaxing effects of the treatment, the practice of reflexology take specific reflex points on the foot to induce a healing response in corresponding organs and areas of the body. In short, the more we go for this massage, the healthier we will feel.
A typical reflexology session begins by cleansing the feet with a warm bath or with a steaming towel. Before starting the treatment, the therapist may ask you if you want the pressure to be applied soft, medium, or hard. You are free to tell the therapist if you have any particular physical complaints, so they can focus on the reflex points that will alleviate these complaints.
