Reflexology is a gentle touch therapy that can be effective in promoting deep relaxation.
Reflexology is a gentle touch therapy for the feet or hands that can be effective in promoting deep relaxation, reducing tension and restoring balance and wellbeing to the body and mind. It can be key in optimising good health. Reflexology is based on the theory that different points on the feet and hands correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work these points and areas with gentle and appropriate pressure using thumbs and fingers. Several studies indicate that it may reduce pain and psychological symptoms such as stress and anxiety and enhance relaxation and sleep.
