Reflexology is the science that deals with the reflex points on the soles of the feet and palms, which correspond to each organ and part of the body. By stimulating these reflex points with special pressures and physical manipulations, the self-healing forces of the body are released and thus we achieve the activation, relaxation and balance of the organism.
It is basically a holistic method. The Reflexologist has the experience to find and activate points that may be related to the problem and then will work the hormonal, immune, circulatory system, as well as the excretory organs.

How Reflexology works
When there is an imbalance or a blockage in an organ or in a part of the body, then in the corresponding reflex point some sediments are formed, that is, some knots, which the specialist feels with his fingers.
By stimulating these reflex points, the best circulation of blood, lymph and energy is achieved in the corresponding part of the body, which suffers, while at the same time endorphins are released from the brain, which are the body's natural analgesics, and muscle tension is reduced. this is how any pain stops.


Where Reflexology helps us

It is well known that most problems are caused by stress and nervous tension. About 75% of the disorders treated are related to stress.
Reflexology reduces stress, relaxes tensions and releases the healing forces of the body. All the functions of the body are harmonized and the process of self-healing of the individual is facilitated.

  • Traffic is getting better
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • It balances the hormone
  • The excretory organs work better and thus the body is detoxified

The hands in reflexology work in addition to the treatment we do on the feet. Their reflex points on the hands resemble those of the soles of the feet, the palms are essentially a miniature of the human body. The points on the hands where we can work for the relief of the person are deeper and difficult to locate because the hands are tired but less than the feet which are trapped inside the shoes.
