Reflexology has been around for many, many years. Its origins can be traced back to China around 2300 BC. Over the years it was shared across cultures and eventually made its way to Europe and North America.
Reflexology is a healing modality that deals with, in the simplest of terms, applying pressure to areas of your feet, hands, and ears. These reflex areas relate to other areas of the body. By applying pressure to an area on your foot you can stimulate a corresponding area in the body and help the body provide relief from pain or discomfort.
Reflexology can help stimulate your circulatory system. All of our cells require oxygen and nutrients to function properly. They receive both of those from our blood as it is circulated through out our body. Without good circulation and an adequate supply of oxygen and nutrients, cells die or become damaged.
