Reflexology is an alternative medicine that focuses on the reflexes in the body. It is believed that there are reflex points on the head, hands, and feet that correspond to the organs and systems within the body. Reflexology is a type of massage that uses pressure on these reflex points in order to alleviate stress. Clinicians who administered reflexology must be licensed and may include chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists.
What can Reflexology Treat?
Reflexology is used to relax the body and minimize stress. Some studies by the National Cancer Institute indicate that reflexology may help with anxiety and depression. It also claims to treat a variety of conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and cancer.
How is Reflexology Administered?
The reflexologist will apply pressure to the reflex points while looking at specific charts to guide their maneuvers. They may use their hands or other devices such as rubber balls, rubber bands, and sticks of wood.
