Foot Reflexology

  • In reflexology theory, specific points and areas on the feet correspond to specific organs, bones, glands and systems. We believe that reflexology works with the central nervous system. Application of appropriate pressure to the reflex points or areas sends a calming message from the extremities of the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system, which in turns signals the body to adjust the tension level and brings it into a state of optimum functioning and increases blood supply

  • Left feet corresponds to the left side of the body and all organs found there and right feet corresponds to other side
