There are many theories as to how reflexology works, but in our approach we look to the nervous system as the explanation of reflexology’s working. Pressure applied to the feet generates a signal through the peripheral nervous system.
From there, it enters the central nervous system where it is processed in various parts of the brain. It is then relayed to the internal organs to allocate the necessary adjustments in fuel and oxygen.
Finally, a response is fashioned that is sent onto the motor system. This message is fed forward to adjust the body’s tone or overall tension level. If applied properly, the tone will reset itself to a lower operating tempo. A lower operating tempo means a lessening of stress and less wear and tear on the body’s systems.
