Reflexology is a holistic approach to healing and maintaining health that dates back over five thousand years to ancient Egypt. Reflexology works primarily through the Nervous System, the Endocrine System, and through the Meridians. The theory is that all systems of the body (muscles, bones, organs, and glands) are represented on both the hands and feet and these systems can be affected by "reflexing" or applying pressure to these particular points, to release energy and send signals to the various systems of the body to return them to normal function. Reflexology creates a state of complete relaxation and balancing of energy throughout the entire body. With all systems of the body in a state of balance or "homeostasis", at that point the body begins to heal itself.
