Reflexology is one of the most ancient healing techniques practiced. Although it originates in Egypt, at some point close to 2330 BC, similar techniques are known to have been practiced by the Chinese and North American native tribes as well. With its potential benefits being acknowledged all the more to this day, reflexology is now being practiced throughout the world, in terms of palliative or supportive care, both to enhance well-being and physical strength in healthy individuals, but, more importantly, to alleviate severe symptoms of multiple chronic or end-stage diseases.
Reflexology is one of the most safe and specific healing techniques. Therapists apply pressure to certain areas of the feet and hands; this exerts a beneficial effect on other parts of the body, including musculature, visceral organs and skin. The extremities are often clearly mapped by reflexologists: in this way, very specific areas of the hands or feet correspond to very specific distant locations of the whole body, which are positively affected by the way the extremities are handled during a session.
Apart from enhancing well-being and providing stress relief for people otherwise healthy, reflexology is one of the most powerful weapons in treatment of chronic conditions. Reflexology is known to offer pain relief and improve the quality of life in the case of many conditions, such as breast cancer, lung cancer, asthma, and severe neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy as a complication of diabetes and stroke patients.
