BENEFITS

Every body from the body of a newborn baby to the body of a centenarian can benefit from the relaxing and healing effects of reflexology. Reflexology applied to the feet or hands can help remove excess body tension, improve circulation, and normalize body function. When properly applied, reflexology feels great and leaves a body feeling relaxed, renewed and full of vitality. Your body! Every body!

Reflexology not only positively affects our physical bodies, but has a positive balancing effect on the mental, emotional and spiritual parts of ourselves. Reflexology is easy to learn and can be applied by virtually any person eager enough to learn. How does reflexology work? It's really quite simple. We press a reflex point on the foot or hand. A message is sent to a body part. That body part begins to let go of excess stress, tension and congestion. Blood flows in, waste products are removed, circulation is normalized. The body begins to heal itself: a headache begins to disappear, fatigue turns to energy, back pain melts away, a fussy baby settles down, sinuses drain, hiccups stop, a hyper child or wakeful adult sleeps, and stress drains from the body.

Reflexology is a powerful and effective twentieth century healing art based on century old principles. The term "reflexology" has been around since the beginning of its practise in North America in the 1930's. The technique has probably been with us since the beginning of man. Most primitive societies practised some form of reflexology. Records show the practise being used in 2500 B.C. in Egypt. The principle of "zone therapy", used for 4000 years in China, contributed to the development of modern reflexology.

An ancient technique has been rediscovered for the benefit of modern man. Reflexology is a healing technique that can renew our bodies and minds, supporting our health and well-being through the pressures of twenty first century living.
