How Reflexology Works

Reflexology is an ancient therapy that originated in Egypt and was practiced by physicians more than 5,000 years ago.It was introduced to the western world over 100 years ago.Reflexology is a healing practice of massaging and applying pressure to the nerve endings in the feet.These nerve endings (or acupressure points) connect to all parts of the body through neural pathways and the central spinal system.Reflexology releases blocked energy in the nerve endings stimulating a natural healing response throughout the body.Reflexology also activates the parasympathetic nervous system (this system is responsible for relaxation and wellbeing).
