Reflexology is More Than Just a Massage

If you’ve ever had a good foot massage, you know how much it can relax your body and mind. The main reason why this happens can be explained by reflexology. This exercise is about exerting pressure on specific points in the lower part of the foot, and often also on the palms and ears, to reduce tension, pain and other unpleasant feelings.

Reflexology, rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, is one of the traditional Chinese medicine practices, a healing system with a thousand years. According to its principles, the energy of Qi flows into each of us. When we are under stress or are exposed to negative emotions, Qi is blocked in some places, causing health complications.

Fortunately, it is possible to remove these blockages with reflexology. There are points on our feet, and each of them is connected to a different body part. With their compression, the release of blocked energy occurs, which solves the problem, whether it is the movement device, the psyche, or an internal organ.
