What is Reflexology?
Reflexology can be defined as specific massage like techniques applied to the feet. When these techniques are applied with intense enough pressure they provoke an action potential. An action potential is a self-regenerating wave of electrochemical activity that allows nerve cells to carry a signal over a distance. When action potentials (also known as nerve impulses or spikes) occurs in the body through pressure, many structures of the body are affected by this stimulation including nerves, muscles, the central nervous systems, organs, and glands. Reflexology is healing experience through deep relaxation or stimulation that allows the body to initiate its own internal healing mechanism. Charlotte Irwin
