All the benefits of Chinese medicine...
Foot reflexology is a Chinese foot massage. According to traditional Chinese medicine, each reflex zone would correspond to an organ, a gland or a part of the body which would project on the soles of the feet.
A specific touch locates tensions and releases them. Incredibly relaxing, this technique activates blood circulation in the feet, erasing the stresses of the day. The manual gesture is precise, it is a pressure made with the thumb most of the time. If the reflexologist feels a tension at the level of an acupressure point, he then exerts a rotation in order to regulate the energy flow.
Indeed, the different reflex zones of the foot send a signal to the central nervous system, which redistributes it to the corresponding organ or gland. The point of the foot responds by being harder and more sensitive, indicating the dysfunction of the region of the body concerned. Thus, the reflexologist will insist on the area of the foot in question, prolonging the massage or performing particular techniques to regulate the imbalance.
