Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient practice that was used in ancient Egypt, India and China. Reflexology involves the treatment of the body by pressing on "reflex" areas on the hands and feet. These areas correspond to specific organs, glands and other parts of the body. Reflexology is suitable for those with high blood pressure, diabetes, poor circulation and poor sleep.

Reflexology is also used for post-operative or palliative care. A study in the American Cancer Society journal found that one-third of cancer patients used reflexology as a complementary therapy.
