Reflexology is a system of complementary medicine that maps out the reflexes on the feet and hands to all the organs and the rest of the body. By applying acupressure and massage-like techniques to these reflex points on the feet and hands, the related body parts are positively affected, and blood, nerve and lymphatic systems are invigorated thus improving supply. Reflexology can be used as a form of preventative maintenance, as well as to treat specific medical conditions. It is useful in treating arthritis, digestive problems, neck and back pain, migraine, menstrual and menopausal symptoms. Reflexology has been found to be beneficial for physical and emotional symptoms.
