What is Reflexology?
If you think of your body as a tree, then our feet would be the roots of our body with thousands of nerve endings and pressure points being connected to a specific organ. Reflexology is a massage practice that focuses on the vital connection from our feet to the rest of our body, helping to increase energy level, blood circulation, and more!
Moreover, in the ancient Chinese belief, when a person feels stressed, their "qi" or “vital energy” is blocked, which causes an imbalance in the body. The Chinese believe that reflexology and the pressure of reflexologist helps prevent illness and keep the organ system balanced by allowing the qi and energy to flow across the body.
