I was asked recently if there is any proof that reflexology works other than to relax? Ie: if it can really identify/treat internal imbalances/problems. What answer could i give to convince?!

Hi, Edel!

How are you today?

Thank you for questioning with this really good one. I sometimes ask myself the same without noticing that reflexology is more than a simply relaxing therapy. There are many things happening inside our bodies after receiving reflexology but how can we see it all. Just to mention some of the effects, it balances the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems which work together in order to create homeoestasis or inner balance, thus making all the rest of body systems to work optimally.

I hope that this is fine. Anyway if you need further help please do not hesitate in doing so,
