Using your foot as a road map to your body, reflexology is able to tap into different muscles, nerves, and even organs. This modality utilizes the body’s natural reflexes in order to affect a change in the area you want, simply by applying specific pressure on certain areas of the foot.

Think for a moment about what your feet must go through in a day. They may be the most stressed out and abused body part there is! Running, walking, standing all day, our feet put up with a lot from us and, according to reflexologists, overall health begins in the feet and moves upwards. Because of this, the benefits of a foot massage are countless.
