What is Reflexology?
Reflexology,sometimes referred to as zone therapy,is a complementary health therapy based on the theory that areas of the feet correspond to other parts of the body, Properly trained practitioners then apply pressure to the feet using specific massage techniques to restore balance to the body,relieve stress and promote a general sense of wellbeing.
The Cochrane Coolaboration , which is a non profit,medical research group,gives the following definition of reflexology:
“Reflexology is gentle manipulation or pressing on certain parts of the foot to produce an effect elsewhere in the body.”
