Reflexology is a complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients to promote better health for their clients.
Well trained reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment tailored to you, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing. It works for some and not for others. The best way to find out is to try it!
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its natural balance. After a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel more relaxed. You might notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving.
There is not a large enough body of evidence for clinical claims of the effectiveness of Reflexology to be made, but with increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs.
The aim of World Reflexology Week is to promote reflexology and increase public awareness around the globe. Remember global awareness begins at local level!
