Reflexology is the science that deals wit the principle that there are areas on the feet and hands that correspond to the major glands and organs of the body.
It is based on the principle that there are numerous energy pathways that travel to every organ of the body and have endings in many locations just below the skin surface (primarily in the feet and hands).
The techniques of reflexology involve stimulating these endings - called reflex points - to improve every flow in order to treat illness and alleviate pain in organs and elsewhere on the pathway.
By stimulating and applying pressure to the feet or hands, increased circulation and promotion of specific bodily and muscular functions will occur.
Reflexologists view the feet and hands as a mirror image of the body.
Reflexology is both a science and an art.
As a science, it requires the skill and knowledge of the practitioner.
As an art, it requires the dedication and love of the practitioner.
