What is Reflexology? Reflexology is a specific touch technique of applying pressure to reflex points of the feet and hands that correspond to all the glands, organs and systems of the body. The physical act of applying specific pressure using thumb and fingers to these reflex areas results in improved circulation and reduced body stress which promotes documented physiological changes in the body. Reflexology works through the Nervous System. Each foot has over 7,200 reflex points, 28 bones held together by a network of 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, 31 tendons and 30 joints. The average foot is subjected to more than 70 tons of pressure per mile. The average person walks around the world four times in his or her lifetime. Reflexology will help relieve this pressure in your aching feet.
