Reflexology is one of the most fascinating techniques for helping the body to health itself and to release stress, as well as decrease congestion.

Reflexology originated in Germany and is based upon the principle of every organ having a corresponding spot on the sole of the foot. For example, the liver and gall bladder would have a spot on the right foot, and the spleen and pancreas would have a spot on the left. When there are right and left, like lungs, ears or eyes, the spots are on both feet. All organs and areas of the body have their own ending spot on the foot. 

When you receive a reflexology treatment, each foot is addressed with pressure, manipulation, and techniques that break down blockages and decrease congestion, as well as increasing circulation and relaxation. The treatment often addresses tender spots which usually subside before the end of the treatment. 

In Europe today, doctors, nurses and physical therapists include reflexology in their procedures to speed up healing and bring the body back to homeostasis. 

When the body is out of balance due to stress, disease, or injury, this non-invasive treatment helps the body realign itself.
