Reflexology Treatment is an ancient Chinese Acupressure technique that applies different amounts of pressure, generally to the feet, as a way to stimulate and clear away blocked energy within the body and various health conditions. Reflexology rests on the ancient Chinese belief in qi (pronounced “chee”), or “vital energy.” According to this belief, qi flows through each person. When a person feels stressed, their body blocks qi which can cause an imbalance in the body that leads to physical and/or emotional illness. Reflexology aims to keep qi flowing through the body, keeping it balanced and disease free. Reflexologists believe that certain points on the feet, hands and ears that are directly connected to the energy pathways of one’s organs and body systems. When these specific points are massaged with firm pressure, they can produce a positive and healing effect on the corresponding areas of the body.
