Describe reflexology. Can it help you relax?

Pressure is applied to specific locations on the feet during reflexology (or the hands). In general, reflexology is calming and may reduce stress.

Reflexology is based on the idea that various parts of the foot represent various bodily functions and systems. It is said that applying pressure to the foot will relax and heal the area of the body it corresponds to.

Foot charts are used by reflexologists as a guidance when applying pressure to particular locations. Reflexology is sometimes paired with other hands-on treatments and can be provided by a variety of health professionals, including chiropractors and physical therapists.

Numerous research suggest that reflexology may improve rest and sleep while reducing pain and psychological symptoms including tension and anxiety. Reflexology can be a viable option if you’re looking for relaxation and stress treatment because it is also minimal risk.
