Foot Reflexology Massage

Foot Reflexology Massage Hillcrest San Diego

Eunice Ingham developed foot reflexology massage based on research done by doctors toward the end of the nineteenth century. She mapped out relationships between areas of the feet and the organs and muscles of the body. The thousands of nerve endings in the feet are extensively interconnected with the spinal cord and the brain. By applying pressure along those "reflex points", tension can be released in the corresponding parts of the body.

Reflexology is also a way of increasing circulation, thus aiding in the release of toxins which collect in the feet in crystal form. Many doctors have used reflexology as an adjunct to their treatment of patients. At the very least, this is a way of helping recipients achieve greater relaxation. The resulting sense of balance can be an important step toward healing.
