Reflexology is a science based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the hands, feet, and ears which correspond to glands, organs, and various parts of the body.
Stimulating these reflexes properly can naturally help your body overcome health problems without the use of medicine, needles, or machines. Reflexology positively affects the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive and immune system.
Though, reflexology should not be confused with massage therapy.
Reflexology works on the nervous system, whereas massage therapy works on the muscular system.
When pressure is applied to the different points on the hands, feet, and ears, they send messages from the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system. This, in turn, signals the body to reduce the tension level, thus enhancing overall relaxation. The increased blood flow brings additional oxygen and nutrients to cells and enhances waste removal.
