Many of our Tulsa clientele are curious about reflexology, one of our popular wellness services, but don’t know very much about this ancient healing art. For this reason, we’ve compiled an FAQ to help educate our patients about how reflexology can alleviate stress, physical pain and more.
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is an ancient healing art that uses the application of appropriate pressure to specific points on the feet, hands and/or ears. It is believed that these points correspond to different body organs and any energy that is blocked there. Through the application of this pressure, a person’s organs and general health can be improved.
Is reflexology the same thing as massage?
While the power of touch is important to both massage and reflexology, massage focuses on the muscular system and releasing muscular pain and tension, while reflexology focuses on the nervous system and vital energy circulating throughout the body.
What can reflexology do for me?
Reflexology can restore balance and harmony in the body while releasing tension and producing a feeling of relaxation and calm. Our patients have reported improvements to conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), PMS, joint pain, anxiety, depression, stress, fatigue, insomnia, headaches and Fibromyalgia. Reflexology can also ease symptoms related to cancer treatment, helping to cope with side effects related to chemotherapy.
