How does reflexology work?
Pressure is applied to the different points on the hands, feet, and ears which send messages from the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system. This, in turn, signals the body to reduce the tension level. This enhanced overall relaxation, brings internal organs and their systems into a state of optimum functionality and increased blood flow. The increased blood flow brings additional oxygen and nutrients to cells and enhances waste removal. Reflexology positively affects the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive and immune system.
