You might say, the practice of reflexology is an oriental method of healing with the feet. Practitioners of reflexology believe that nerves in your feet are connected to various organs in the body.

Practitioners of reflexology have a map of the foot which gives direction to the various couplings of feet to other parts of the body.

The practice of reflexology can enhance serenity and calm. It aids in treatment of diseases such as cancer. It enhances blood flow, immunity and energy.

Healing with the feet can relieve headaches, and various disorders. It can reduce depression, stress and trauma.

One of the bonuses of the practice of reflexology is that it is completely safe, with no possible negative side effects and needing no equipment or medications. You can be confident in the hands of an experienced practitioner of reflexology.

"Hand techniques using pressure, stretching, and movement will be applied to the entire foot. Although the practitioner should move at your pace, at times you may experience some pain or discomfort when they are pressing certain areas in your foot."
