There are reflex points on the hands that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body and by using the unique thumb and finger techniques on these reflexes, the body responds by relaxing, rebalancing, and improving blood circulation. The hands are not as senstitive as the feet and the reflex points are much deeper, however, a hand reflexology treatment can be extremely beneficial. Hand reflexology can be used at the start or end of a traditional foot reflexology treatment, or as a stand-alone treatment in its own right. It is particularly useful to use when a foot is injured or where a client is unable to elevate their leg.
