How does it work? ( Seattle Reflexology & Massage Center – not a direct quote)
*Through a subtle energy flow, zones in the feet and through the nervous system. Reflexology helps break up a substance that accumulates at nerve endings and assists in preventing and clearing venous stasis.
When the feet are out of balance, compensation patterns develop that compound over time throughout the body. Natural realignment of bones in the feet corrects imbalances through over or under-stimulation of the reflexes, enabling natural healing to take place. The physical act of applying specific pressures using thumb, finger and hand techniques results in stress reduction that causes physiological changes in the body. A primary benefit of reflexology is relaxation. Relaxation through reflexology may help the body to balance the stress it is experiencing.
