Reflexology is an ancient healing modality that has been used by most cultures as a means of healing the mind body and spirit. Most cultures have used some type of practice of healing on the feet for centuries. The most notable examples are the Egyptians, Chinese, and Hindu cultures.
The principle philosopy is there are points on the feet that relate reflexively to all parts of the body. Manipulating the feet with a specfic thumb and finger reflexing technique, activates the foot reflexes and stimulates, balances the part of the body represented by the foot reflex zone. Reflexology is different from foot massage. Reflexology is a systematic and thorough manipulation of the feet using very specfic techinues as opposed to randon rubbing of the feet in massage.
Reflexology can be done for relaxation purposes or it can be used for very specific therapuetic purpose. Just as massage has relaxing and soothing techniques, reflexology can be done gently for relaxing purposes or with more deeper pressure for a more stimmulating healing effect.
