What is reflexology and how does it work?
Reflexology is an alternative method of relieving pain by using the pressure points on the feet and hands. It is also known as a zone therapy and it focuses on the reflex areas. Reflexology practices have numerous mentions in the history of China and Egypt. Since the ancient times, there has been a belief that the reflex areas are responsible for certain organs and systems in the human body. Pressing these areas can have a positive effect on health.
Reflexology does not diagnose or cure the health issues and it doesn’t replace the traditional medications. Many clinics around the world use this therapy as a complementary treatment that has an added value to the traditional medicine. Reflexology is also not a form of a usual massage as it focuses only on the hands and feet.
