Reflexology is an ancient Chinese practice, but it is still very popular today. Reflexology is so popular as it is a painless, alternative way to rid the body of certain ailments and illnesses. In fact, it can be quite relaxing! A therapist will ask you a few background questions to get an idea of your lifestyle and overall health. They will then apply pressure to the feet to work out which parts of you need a bit of a boost.
