Reflexology is based on the theory that all major organs, glands and body parts are mapped out on the feet and hands. To start a reflexology session, the client first decides what they would like the treatment to be focused on. Then the client starts face up on the table with their socks and shoes removed. The therapist will then work on the feet, one at a time, focusing on the client's complaints. Depending on how long the session is, the therapist will often time work on the hands too.
There are many benefits to reflexology, some include; reduction in stress, improvement in circulation, cleansing the body of toxins, balancing the body, revitalizing energy and stimulation creativity and productivity. Getting reflexology regularly also seems to help in bolstering the immunological defenses, making it great for preventive health care.
