Easy to perform, hand reflexology provides vitality, relaxation, health and well-being to the whole body. By using the sensitive parts of the hands, it is effective on many parts of the body such as respiratory organs, head and heart. Easier to access, hands also have the advantage of sheltering nerve endings that communicate with the whole body.
Although there are fewer organs that can be treated by stimulating hands reflex zones than those accessible on the feet, the reality is that hand reflexology is a faster method of treatment.
In addition, the method of hand massage is almost similar to acupressure, the only difference being the reflex points.
On this part of the body, sensitive zones are located on the surface, inside the hands and on the phalanges. If hand reflexology is not as popular as foot reflexology, it has the benefit of being simple and easy to perform. In addition, just like feet, hands own the most sensitive parts of the body. Hand reflexology is thus seen as a complementary approach to foot reflexology, especially to strengthen the impact of stress on reflex zones located on the feet. However, this does not exclude the practice of hand reflexology independently.
A hand reflexology session often begins and ends with an exchange between the practitioner and the client. It usually follows several stages.
On the other side, hand reflexology can be practiced independently of foot reflexology.
It can even be performed as a self-massage every day, alternating, for example, with sessions at the reflexologist's for foot massages.
Last but not least, hand reflexology is for both children and adults.
The technique is especially appreciated by elderly people because of its non-intrusive nature.
However, it should not be carried out in the event of wounds or infectious skin inflammation, circulatory disorders, pregnancy (during the first three months), trauma or heart problems.
