The effects of reflexology are unique to each person. Reflexology triggers the body's relaxation response.Illness or injury, dis-ease or stress can cause energy pathways can become blocked preventing the body from functioning effectively,precision pressure movements during a reflexology session can detect tiny deposits in the soft tissues and imbalances from touching the feet, hands or ears.
