Reflexology - What Is It?

Reflexology was put to use centuries ago in Japan, Egypt, China and India. Achieving pain relief by the application of pressure to particular areas of the human body (particularly the feet and hands), is a concept of reflexology that has been adopted through the ages by various peoples and civilizations. In the 1910's today's form of reflexology was created, mostly thanks to the hard work of Doctor William Fitzgerald. His practices were expanded on in the 1930's by nurse and physiotherapist Eunice Ingham (1889 - 1974), who mapped the feet.

Reflexology is a holistic supplementary and alternative method of treatment which works by controlling the natural energy pathways through the entire body to accomplish balance, wellness and help in healing process. The general perception is that it is on the hands and feet that reflexologists solely work. This is not the case however, because there are also energy pathways in the ears, hand, lower leg and face, and so these bodily areas can also be manipulated to get pain relief. The desired results are accomplished during a reflexology session by realigning the body's energy pathways by the application of pressure on these zones.

Since every single gland and organ connects to reflex zones in the hands, manipulating these points can have the result of enhancing the circulation of blood not to mention relaxing and rebalancing the body. Though the reflex zones are deeper in the hands and the hands aren't so sensitive as the feet are, hand reflexology can still be effective. You can use hand reflexology as a treatment in its own right or combined with foot reflexology.
