What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a branch of massage that focuses solely on the hands and feet. Originally developed as "zone therapy" in the early twentieth century, reflexology uses specifically targeted points on the extremities to send signals to the brain and balance the nervous system. Reflexology is based on similar principals as Chinese medicine, looking at the foot as a microsystem of the body.
What will I feel?
Most people find reflexology for the most part to be very relaxing.
Reflexology shouldn't be painful. If you feel discomfort, be sure to tell the reflexologist. He or she should work within your comfort zone.
Some areas may be tender or sore, and the reflexologist may spend extra time on these points. The soreness should decrease with pressure.
If you're ticklish, not to worry. The reflexologist applies firm pressure to the feet.
