Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt, China, and India, but this age-old massage technique offers powerful benefits for today. Reflexology divides the feet and hands into zones, where specific nerves within these extremities are directly linked to other areas of the body. By massaging, stretching, and otherwise manipulating these zones in focused patterns, practitioners can greatly reduce stress and improve energy flow to the affected areas.
