Reflexology
Pages 4

Reflexology is a physical therapy, a natural hands-on touch technique, a holistic

method of treating and preventing illness with foot massage. It is thought that

disease of a specific area of the body is matched up with reflex areas mostly found in

the hands and feet. It is believed that illness occurs when ‘energy channels’ in the

body are blocked, obstructing the free flow of energy to a specific area.
