Foot Massage has been utilized by ancient civilizations for thousands of years, simply because rubbing the foot helps the whole body to heal better and feel better. The difference between foot massage and reflexology is the intent and purpose the pressure applied to the foot. Reflexology is specific pressure points on the foot which are pressed to stimulate healing for the specific health concerns of the recipient.

This ancient 4,000 B.C. established therapy mirrors the organs of the body along the meridians of ones feet or hands. By focusing on the corresponding meridians that align to specific areas of the body the clients natural healing abilities can be stimulated while helping the whole body to relax.
