Reflexology is thought to have been around since the Bronze Age and is now a well-known and well-respected complementary therapy. But does it work? And if so, how?
Reflexology, at least in its mechanics, acts as a type of deep tissue massage that includes trigger-point therapy. It is useful in many types of muscle, nerve, and joint conditions.
Reflexology works. Looking at it with Western logic, it shouldn't work—how can a foot massage cure the pain in your neck, shoulder, or hip? But reflexology worked for me.
Do you have a fear of injections? Why not try a natural pain-relieving therapy instead? Hand reflexology, applied specifically to the tooth reflex, can relieve toothache pain.
Reflexology uses massage to target specific areas of the feet and hands. This technique sends direct signals to the nervous, circulation, and respiratory systems.
