Based on the Chinese concept of Chi or energy, reflexology works on the principle that every part of the body is reflected in areas or points on the hand or foot. By applying skilful pressure to these points, tension and stress patterns in the corresponding part of the body can be relaxed or released and effectively be healed. Reflexologist’s view that the feet and hands are a mirror image of the body, when pressure is applied it generates signals through the peripheral nervous system which enters the central nervous system where it is processed in various parts of the brain. It is then relayed to the internal organs to allocate the necessary adjustments in fuel and oxygen, this message is fed forward to adjust the body's tone or overall tension level.
The benefits of reflexology are generally to do with reducing stress or tension, however it is also often used as an indicator to what part of the body is out of balance that may need some further alternative therapy or remedy.
