What is Reflexology?, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It’s a system of massage used to relieve tension and treat illness, based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body.

How it works and zone therapy?

The right foot and hand represent the right side of the body, while the left foot and hand represent the left side; and according to ‘zone therapy’, there are ten different zones in the body. The feet are most commonly worked on in reflexology, because practitioners feel they are normally more responsive to treatment than the hands, since they contain a larger treatment area and so the reflex points are easier to identify; and, because the feet are usually protected by shoes and socks, they are more sensitive to treatment. However, the hands can be used for treatments just as effectively and are great to work on, especially when giving you reflexology.

Some theory explained.

 The theory underlying reflexology is that the organs, nerves, glands and other parts of the body are connected to reflex areas or reflex points on the feet and hands.
These areas are found on the soles of the feet and palms of the hands, as well as on the top and sides of the feet and hands.
By stimulating these areas using a compression technique and a form of massage with your thumbs, fingers and hands, you can create a direct response in a related body area. For example, by working on the head reflex (which is found on the big toe, you can activate the body’s own healing processes to help alleviate headaches.
