Healing Benefits of Reflexology

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is the practice of using pressure points in the hands, ears and feet to activate and stimulate energy channels, which promote healing and relaxation.  Reflexologists believe that illness is caused by blockages in the meridians or energy channels, also known as qi (chi) causing the accumulation of negative energy, resulting in pain or disease.  There are over 7,000 nerve endings just in the feet alone, and these are connected to the whole body through the central nervous system.  When massaged these nerve endings stimulate the body and promote healing.  The ancient practice of reflexology dates back as far as 4000 B.C.E. to China and Egypt.
