5 essential benefits of reflexology
One of the oldest traditional massage techniques, reflexotherapy continues to surprise massage enthusiasts even today.
The first evidence of reflexology is over 3000 years old. Over time, it has been perfected and used both as a medical technique, to treat various conditions through reflexogenic points of internal organs, and as a way of relaxation.
The science of reflexology has studied in recent centuries the connection of reflexogenic points, connecting points present in the soles, palms, necks and ears with their internal correspondents, in order to be able to prevent and relieve their specific conditions.
Guided by a map of reflexogenic areas and points, therapists can help you better understand your body’s needs, overcome inner blockages or treat from within, through the body’s natural healing force, the conditions you face.
Today, the benefits of reflexology go beyond relaxation, which can be a real solution to the problems and discomfort caused by daily lifestyle, stress, fatigue, or seasonal changes.
