Reflexology Massage in Miami
The reflexology massage focuses on reflex points on one’s feet and hands for healing. It is an ancient form of healing practiced in ancient China and ancient Egypt as well. Nowadays reflexology has become a popular method for relieving stress and pain. These therapies are so much more than just a regular foot massage, as they focus on specific reflex points on a foot to induce a healing response in corresponding organs.
The philosophy behind reflexology teaches that your body is divided into ten vertical zones, running from your head down to the reflex areas in your hands and feet, and from the front to the back of your body, so here is how it actually works. All body parts in each zone are said to be linked by energy pathways which allow our vital energy to flow freely, meaning that we are in good health. If this energy becomes stagnant, or blocked completely at a particular part of the body, due to injury, illness, stress, etc, this often manifests itself as crystalline deposits in the feet.
A reflexologists treat aims to break down these crystals, and stimulate our energy, allowing it to flow freely again, relieving the area of pain. Firm therapy will also increase the blood and lymph circulation to that reflex area, and the corresponding area of the body promoting good health and a sense of balance in mind and body.
