Reflexology is a special massage technique that involves applying pressure on acupressure points of targeted areas on the body; specifically the feet. This distinctive massage art is said to have its origins in the lands of China, Egypt and India. The main belief is that reflex points on the soles of the feet directly relate to various body parts and organs. For example, the inner edge of the foot has points that correspond to the spine and back, while the eyes, ears and sinuses are designated on the pads of the toes. Reflexologists are confident that it is possible to restore your overall health and well-being by massaging these specific pressure points.
Depending on the area or cause of your ailment, the reflexologist will target the points that are associated with that particular pain source. The treatment might be initially painful and several sessions may be required before the condition improves.
A foot reflexology massage is also a great way to reduce any kind of stress. The healing touch of the reflexologist encourages the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good hormones, which in turn relieves the feeling of tension and stress. Due to its non-invasive yet highly beneficial results, reflexology massages are a very common treatment option at many European Health Spas.
