Reflexology is an alternative treatment that has been used for centuries, dating back to ancient Chinese and Egyptian civilizations. A reflexologist will apply pressure to specific areas in the hands, feet, and ears that affect certain reflex areas of the body. This special massage technique has been noted to: stimulate nerve function, increases energy, boost circulation, induce a deep state of relaxation, eliminate toxins, stimulate the central nervous system, prevent migraines, clean- up urinary tract conditions, speed recovery after injury or surgery, relieve sleep disorders, reduce depression, and relieves pain. It has been reported to help ease the treatment of various cancers and even help to soothe the pains of pregnancy, even those occurring after the baby is born.
