Foot Reflexology is actually an ancient practice from some 5,000 years ago in China and Egypt. Ankhmahor’s tomb had a pictograph of people performing this ancient practice and is believed to be one of the first records of foot reflexology. Having then been introduced by William H. Fitzgerald in 1913, it has since become a very popular massage technique in the United States. Nowadays, more establishments are adapting this practice as it has been known to give healthful effects to its patients.
This is an alternative massaging procedure that positively influences pressure points in your feet that are believed to be linked to different organs and parts of the body. Targeting these pressure points contributes to the health, and well-being of a person, as well as being able to help with alleviating the treatment symptoms of some medical conditions. It has also been found to be a good complementary procedure to cancer treatments.
Although these do not guarantee a 100% success, it is enough to add this into your health regimen to ensure a more relaxed and clear-headed state after rigorous activities.
