Reflexology—also known as zone therapy—is the application of pressure to areas on the feet or hands. The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. “Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body” according to the Mayo Clinic.
Well Being reflexologist Dasha further explains, “Reflexologists can feel tender, sensitive or crunchy sensations on the feet, and that can indicate that an area of your body is out of balance. By pressing the points and working them with gentle pressure, it will kickstart your body’s natural healing powers, improve blood circulation and energy, relieve stress, back pain, shoulder pain, tension, headaches and more.
