Reflexology is a holistic form of bodywork that helps to restore and maintain the health of your entire body. Reflexologists believe that there are reflex points in your feet, hands, or ears which correspond to every part of the body. By applying pressure on these points through massage, tapping, or brushing with a tool like an agate stone you can improve circulation and relieve tension throughout your whole system.
There are many benefits to reflexology from relieving stress and pain in different areas of the body all the way down to improving digestion. The next time you need some relaxation it might be worth giving this therapy a try!
