Reflexology therapy is based on the principle that reflex points located on the soles of the feet, hands, face and ears relate to certain parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these points, the body’s own natural healing response is stimulated to clear blockages within the body, re-establish energy flows, and restore balance, resulting in better health. Each specific reflex point corresponds to a particular body organ or system, so reflexology is able to deliver a subtle and gentle yet powerful and targeted therapy.
Originating in China and India, reflexology therapy involves applying gentle pressure with specific hand techniques to treat a number of issues. The goal is to ease tensions and release any toxins that are impeding the body’s energy flow and self-healing capabilities.
While reflexology is not used to determine causes of disease, diagnose or cure disorders, it is a useful complementary treatment for many conditions including anxiety, asthma, cardiovascular issues, headaches, kidney function, PMS, and sinusitis. The key benefits of reflexology therapy are to reduce pain, increase relaxation, and stimulate blood circulation.
Reflexology therapy can be compared to other natural remedies such as acupuncture and various styles of massage. It uses similar theories to acupuncture, in that it places pressure on one area of the body to evoke a reaction elsewhere. Unlike acupuncture, there are no needles involved and the procedure is completed purely on the hands, feet and ears. Reflexology falls under the umbrella of massage therapies, as it uses the rubbing and pressing techniques used by all massage therapists. Unlike other styles of massage, however, reflexology aims to assist more than just the area being rubbed. By understanding the central nervous system, our Melbourne reflexology therapists can soothe pain, improve immunity and assist in the treatment of tension headaches and migraines.
