Reflexology in Birmingham
What is Reflexology Therapy?
Reflexology aims to promote the body’s own natural healing ability and restore it to a state of balance or homeostasis. It is based on the theory that reflexes in the feet correspond to every organ and gland in the body e.g., the big toe reflects the head and the ball of the foot reflects the lungs. The feet are mini maps of the body. By treating the feet it is possible to treat the entire body as a whole. This is important as it means it is not just particular symptoms that are addressed but the causes too.
Systematic application of pressure applied to the reflexes stimulates nerve pathways. Stimulation of over an estimated 7000 nerve endings occurs during a reflexology treatment.
Treatment on the hands is similar to the feet. The hands have reflex areas associated with organs, glands and muscles of the body. Hand reflexology is a relaxing therapeutic treatment and useful in cases where the feet can not be worked on.
