 In today’s fast paced world, people are confronted with ever-increasing levels of physical, mental, and emotional stress. The American Medical Association stated that 85% of all illness is a result of stress. To help combat stress, many people are seeking out foot reflexology.

Foot reflexology is a safe, non-invasive, natural modality which focuses on areas of the feet which are believed to correspond to all the areas of the body. Pressing these “reflex points” with the fingers helps the correlating body part to relax and recover.

In America, foot reflexology is steadily making its way into mainstream medical practices as an effective form of alternative therapy. On The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Professor of Surgery, stated that “Every patient that I operate on at New York Presbyterian Hospital gets a reflexology type treatment.” Although new to America, reflexology has been used as an effective complimentary therapy for centuries across the globe.

Foot reflexology is also used to help a wide range of health conditions including back pain, sports injuries, migraines, sinusitis, infertility, and sleep disorders. People who receive regular reflexology sessions attest to its positive results.  Foot reflexology is a great option to relieve stress and improve wellbeing.
