What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a therapeutic treatment where the therapist works on reflex points on your feet, hands, and ears that relate to specific organs and glands in the body. Stimulation of those points promotes health in those organs and glands via the body’s energetic pathways.
When done by a skilled practitioner, reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment with benefits that can be felt throughout the body. The therapist will use various techniques that include holds, finger pressure, kneading, rotation and rubbing.
The Effect of Reflexology Should Be Felt Throughout the Body
The best therapists also include hands and feet as part of the reflexology treatment, and you should feel an effect through the entire body. If the therapist is less skilled or inadequately trained, you’ll just feel like you’ve had a very long foot massage.
Eunice Ingham, known as the “pioneer of modern reflexology,” painstakingly mapped the feet with all the corresponding organs and glands of the body. Ingham devised a system of techniques which enable the practitioner to contact the reflexes in the most effective and economic way.This system is known as the “Original Ingham Method” and though this method has been refined still further, her legacy is still the foundation of modern reflexology.
