REFLEXOLOGY OF THE FEET AND HANDS
Why work the feet?
We have over 7000 nerve endings on the soles of our feet. This makes them quite sensitive and responsive to the sensory input of reflexology.
Your body is reflected in your feet. Years of experience by reflexologists and recipients alike suggest that when pressure is applied to the feet, predictable positive changes occur in specific areas elsewhere in the body.
What should you expect?
Your massage therapist will apply thumb or finger pressure to each foot. Certain areas may feel more sensitive than others. The tenderness often decreases as your practitioner works your feet and you begin to relax.
Because it is important to stimulate all the points, your massage therapist will not avoid the tender areas, but will work within your comfort level.
Hand reflexology is a therapeutic massage technique. When administering hand reflexology, pressure is applied to parts of the hand in order to stimulate other parts of the body.
Reflexology is a holistic massage technique. This means a person's whole being is considered (body and mind) in order to restore balance within the body. Each organ, gland, and body part corresponds to areas in both the hand and foot.
