Podal reflexology is a relaxing and regenerative manual therapy that has been used in India and China for more than 5000 years. It is based on the fact that each part – the joints, organs, bowels, glands and, in short, all of our body systems are reflected in the feet. There are corresponding areas in them. It is done with pressure and friction movements using the fingers or wooden tools for more effectiveness at very precise points.
Stimulating these reflex points increases vital energy and the capacity for self-healing in addition to re-establishing health and wellness, preventing pathologies and stimulating organ function.
It is widely used to relieve and cure everyday ailments and pain for following surgery.
It is considered to be a very complete therapy. All body imbalances and alterations end up in the feet because they go through sensitive meridians, canals and conduits. The technique is based on the principle that all organs, systems, glands and joints form a whole and are related.
The purpose of this therapy is to release energy blockage in the organs, improve blood circulation and reach a balance and maintain homeostasis in all systems.
