Reflexology is based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body. These parts, known as reflex points can also be found on the hands and other body parts, however, the most commonly treated area is the feet.
Benefits of Seeing a Reflexologist
Reflexology has many beneficial and lasting effects.

Foot Reflexology Sessions
A foot reflexology session usually lasts about an hour, depending on the age and state of the patient's health. There is no need to get undressed as it is required that only shoes and socks are removed. After a session, the patient will become aware of the changes taking place as toxins released from congested systems are processed and eliminated.
