Experience the ancient art of relaxation.
Reflexology is an ancient practice. The precise date of origination is unknown, but there is evidence that it was a common healing treatment practiced 5,000 years ago in ancient Asian and Middle Eastern cultures. Practices resembling reflexology may have existed in previous historical periods. Documented, there are reliefs on the walls of a Sixth Dynasty Egyptian tomb (c. 2450 B.C.) that depict two seated men receiving massage on their hands and feet.
Reflexology is the use of maps of the feet to determine which body systems correspond with one another. Reflexology is based on the Chinese principle that certain areas on the soles of your feet or hands known as reflex zones, containing millions of nerve endings, correspond to other parts of the body. Studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and National Institute of Health show that reflexology can ease pain and stress and enhance sleep and relaxation. Reflexology, like a number of massage practices, also helps improve symptoms of anxiety and depression, and it has been shown to be beneficial for palliative care of people with cancer.
