Reflexology comes from the root “reflex” or “reflect”, meaning like a mirror image. There are several areas of the body which act as mirrors to our whole body: the feet, hands, ears and abdomen to name a few.
Each of these parts of the body contains zones which can sometimes show or reflect the relative state of harmony in another part of the body. Reflexology is the application of pressure these specific areas on the feet, hands, or ears which corresponds to different body parts, organs and systems. Stimulating these zones or points can therefore benefit a person’s health in that part of the body and help induce a deep overall relaxation.
