Viewing Disease from a Perspective of Wholeness
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is the science and therapeutic art of working specific reflex pathways on the feet, hands, and ears. The stimulation of these pathways by a therapist using thumb, finger, and hand techniques encourages relaxation and stress reduction, and it promotes the opportunity for physiological changes to manifest in the body. Reflexology is rooted in ancient traditions that are amazingly appropriate for the modern world.
