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.
It is a therapy based on the principle that there are small and specific areas of innervation in the hands and feet that correspond with specific muscle groups, organs and glands within the body. In this system, the nerve endings in the extremities provide a “map” of the rest of the body.
Stimulating the appropriate region is intended to eliminate energy blockages thought to produce pain or disease in the related areas. Reflexology is used to prevent, rather than cure, and is used to relieve a wide variety of ailments; helping the body to heal itself by restoring balance to the vital energies.
Some Specific Conditions Where Reflexology could be helpful include:
Backache and Sciatica
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Headaches, including migraines
High Blood Pressure
