HEALTH BENEFITS OF REFLEXOLOGY.
Reflexology will boost your Immune System and keep your vital energy flowing.
Can reduce pain and improve your mood.
With gentle application, reflexology sends sensory calming messages to the central nervous system to relax any tension which increases blood supply oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
Reflexology therapy is known to open neural pathways and flood the nervous system with neuron activity which puts the body in a more relaxed state.
Furthermore, improvement in circulation also means more oxygen reaching the vital organ systems which optimize their functioning and further increases metabolism. The deliverance of oxygen through the body also results in faster healing and re-growth of damaged cells.
By emilinating your body's toxins, it also improves bladder function and that helps reduce the possibility of urinary tract issues.
This results in a more efficient system of eliminating toxins and other foreign elements, thereby protecting your body from various diseases and health conditions.

Some more information.
Reflexology is the holistic understanding, study and practice of treating points and areas in the feet and hands that relate to corresponding parts of the body. Using precise hand and finger techniques, a Reflexologist may improve circulation, induce relaxation and enable balance. This encourages the person's own healing systems to be activated to maintain well-being. Reflexology is a gentle healing art which dates back to ancient Egypt and China. An indication that even then the benefits of this therapy were strongly acknowledged and can be seen in Egyptian tomb art work dating from around 2000BC.
This depicts a scene of the giving and receiving of foot massage.It was not until 1913 that Dr William Fitzgerald introduced this therapy to the West. He found that the application of pressure to one part of the body could create a response in another.
This reflex relationship was found to lie within certain longitudinal zones of which there were ten in the body. Fitzgerald called this the science of "zone therapy".In the 1930's a young physiotherapist called Eunice Ingham further developed the study of zone therapy into reflexology as we know it today. It was she who determined that the reflexes on the feet and hands were an exact mirror image of the organs of the body.Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which works on the feet to assist in restoring homeostatis to the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.With ever increasing levels of stress, it is important people take more responsibility for their own health care needs. Reflexology helps us to cope on a physical, mental and emotional level thereby encouraging us to heal and maintain health in all areas of our lives
