RORY FOSTER, I.I.R.
As a holistic healing practice, Reflexology has been proven effective in alleviating pain and addressing many health problems. One of the greatest benefits is its effectiveness in reducing tension and stress—the principal cause of most illnesses. Its science is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all the glands, organs, and systems of the body. The reflexologist uses a compression technique with the thumb and fingers on these reflexes, which stimulates the nerves that connect to a corresponding body part. This improves blood circulation, opens congested and blocked nerve pathways, cleanses the body of toxins, revitalizes bodily energy, and brings the body into a state of balance where it has a better opportunity to heal itself.
