Reflexology is the scientific art based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all body systems. It is based on the work of two American doctors Dr. William Fitzgerald and Dr. Joe Shelby Riley. The physical act of applying pressure using thumb, finger and hand techniques results in stress reduction which in turn causes a physiological change in the body.

Many of our health problems can be related to stress. Reflexology is primarily a relaxation technique that can negate the effects of stress while it helps the body to relax. Reflexology gently nudges the body towards better functioning by improving lymphatic drainage, circulation, and breaking down calcification between nerve pathways and muscle relaxation.

Reflexologists don't practice medicine in any form. We do not diagnose, prescribe, or treat. Reflexology IS a complement to any type of medical treatment or therapy Though any serious reaction to a reflexology session is rare, there are situations where the use of reflexology is not appropriate. As a professional reflexologist, I use discretion when working on chronic and/or degenerative diseases.
