Oh... Reflexology! Did you know it is also known as zone therapy?
There are more than 7000 nerve endings in the human foot, and by targeting these nerve endings in a treatment we are able to assist the flow of energy through the body to the areas affected by illness or stress. I do always like to let people know that Reflexology can hurt when the congested reflex areas are treated but at the end of a treatment you will leave thoroughly revived and relaxed.
Reflexology is linked too many potential benefits, but only a few have been involved in scientific studies.
It is said to:
Reduce stress and anxiety
Improve general well-being
In addition, people have reported that reflexology has also helped them:
Boost their immune system
Get over colds and bacterial infections
Clear up sinus issues
Recover from back problems
Correct hormonal imbalances
Ease arthritis pain
Treat nerve problems and numbness
