Foot Reflexology

Relaxing Foot Spa Explains Foot Reflexology in PrescottAlthough reflexology dates back to ancient China and Egypt, 'zone therapy' was introduced in the early 1900s and further developed in the mid 1900s into what is now considered modern reflexology.

What is Foot Reflexology?

Foot reflexology involves applying pressure to specific areas of each foot to produce benefits elsewhere in the body. For example:

  • The tips of the toes correlate to the head
  • The ball of the foot correlates to the heart and chest
  • The arch correlates to the liver, pancreas, and kidneys
  • The area around the heel correlates to the lower back and intestines

How is Foot Reflexology Performed?

Your therapist will ask you to remove your shoes and socks and relax comfortably on a massage table or sit in a reclining chair. Your feet will be assessed for wounds or other obvious conditions, and various points stimulated to identify any areas of tension or tenderness. Reflexology is not a foot massage. A complete reflexology session will incorporate many different techniques and include all of the points on both feet to promote healing in the corresponding organs.

 

What does Foot Reflexology do for you?

According to reflexology theories, there are certain points or reflex areas on your feet that are connected to body parts and specific organs through energy channels in the human body. By applying pressure to these certain reflex areas, it is said to remove any energy blockages and promote health in the related body area.

Foot Reflexology is reported to help:

  • Stress and stress-related conditions
  • Tension headaches and migraines
  • Digestive disorders such as constipation
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Sports injuries
  • Menstrual disorders (PMS)
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Balance the nervous system
  • Stimulate endorphins that help to reduce pain and stress.

 

Generally a reflexology session will last between 30 and 60 minutes. You don't need to be ill or in pain to consider reflexology. Maintaining your good health is the best reason of all to look to reflexology.
