Information about Complementary Therapies.
More than just a massage for the feet or hands, reflexology is based on the ancient theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands and head that link to every part of the body. This treatment works holistically to treat the entire body by working on applying specific pressure on reflex points found on the feet.
