What is reflexology on the hands?

Hands Reflexology is a gentle holistic therapy. This gentle type of massage therapy encourages the whole body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance. Hand reflexology is based on the belief that there are reflex areas on the palms, digits and back of the hands which are believed to correspond to specific organs and parts of the body.

Hand Reflexology
  • Relaxing holistic experience

How does Hand Reflexology work?

Reflexology on hands is a massage technique used to strengthen the bond between the body and the mind. Hands reflexology works by applying pressure in various ways to specific reflex points on the hands which correspond to the different internal organs, muscle groups and body systems.

Some of the main benefits of reflexology for hands are:

Reflexology points on the hand

Reflexology points on the hand correspond to various organs and systems within the body. The palm represents the body’s core, while fingers and thumb host reflex areas for the sinus, brain, and head. The area below the fingers connects to the chest and lungs, while the base of the thumb relates to the neck and upper body. Stimulating these points through reflexology of the hands massage or pressure may alleviate discomfort, improve circulation, and promote overall well-being.

What is the difference between Reflexology for hands and Foot Reflexology?

Reflexology of the hands is just as effective as foot reflexology. The reflexes can be deeper within the hand tissues, so more pressure may be required. Choosing between a hand reflexology massage and foot reflexology is a personal choice rather than a medical choice.

Please allow up to 60 minutes for reflexology of the hands.
