Hand Reflexology

Hand reflexology is an art! It is a fantastic adaptation to foot reflexology and valuable for a variety of clients in a multitude of settings. By palpating and applying pressure to specific points, the entire body can benefit. The aim is to stimulate reflexes points with precision causing the body to respond by increasing localized circulation and nerve impulses. This rapidly spreads the electrical activity within the membrane from one reflex to another leading to the transmission of information to the central nervous system. This then responds by sending out a response impulse to organs, glands and muscles.

It is a fact that the reflexes sit deeper in the hands. As a result you must alter the pressure in order to produce the same results as foot reflexology. However, if your client prefers a gentler treatment , then hand reflexology is a wonderful alternative. Some clients including elderly, bereaved, terminally ill clients and bed-bound find hand reflexology more beneficial than foot reflexology.  Stress and emotional disorders also respond particularly well to hand reflexology.
