A few benefits of reflexology massage include but are not limited to: induced relaxation, ridding the body of toxins, increased energy and helping chronic or acute conditions. Many people believe reflexology massage is simply a hand and foot massage. Although that may be what it feels like to a client, it is so much more! Based off a theory which states areas of the feet and hands correlate with other parts of the body, people who practice reflexology massage have the ability to affect the entire body by working only on the hands and feet of their clients. This practice can help with G.I. (gastrointestinal) pain, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, bronchitis and depression, just to name a few. Reflexology is not meant to replace medical care and/or medications and is contraindicated for systemic problems, severe disease, skin disease, injuries, cancer patients, unclear or severe pain, fever, and cardiac pacemakers. If you have a serious condition, it is best to consult with a doctor before receiving reflexology.
