Reflexology theory holds that your entire body is mapped out onto your feet. When certain points are massaged, corresponding areas of your body will be effected. All treatments involve a Chinese Medical diagnosis so that appropriate areas can be massaged for each individual patient. Much like other forms of Chinese medicine, Reflexology is a system that treats the body as a whole, not just the symptoms of a biomedical complaint.
Reflexology has been shown to be an effective treatment for digestive disorders, headaches, various body pains and more!
If you receive a reflexology treatment, always make sure to drink plenty of water following treatment as uric acid that has settled into your feet due to gravity will be released during your treatment! Much like after a massage, if these chemicals are not diluted by water you consume, you may experience feelings of nausea or muscle aches.
