Reflexology and Accupressure

Acu-Reflexology is a treatment system in which areas of the feet, hands and ears are directly connected to other areas of the body. According to reflexology, acupressure applied to the correct reflex points can correct problems with correlating body parts and organs. For instance, an acupresssure point on the arch of the foot may correspond with liver function. When acupressure is applied to the reflex point on the foot, it will stimulate and improve liver function.

The moment a reflexologist's hands start their work, relaxation begins. In general terms, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset the body. Reflexology is a complement to standard medical care.
