The International Academy of Medical Reflexology's Patented Definition for Medical Reflexology is:
Medical Reflexology is a complementary, biological, integrative, blended health science, through which an exercise pressure is applied to reflex areas formed by 7,200 nerve endings in each hand and foot, encouraging improved instruction to each and every specific organ, gland, and part of the body, thus persuading the body to biologically correct, strengthen, and reinforce itself, to reach balance, normalization and homeostasis.
Reflexology allows the body to self-correct and every time a person has a reflexology session, it is an examination, an evaluation, or a re-evaluation of the entire body and all its 12 systems. Reflexology improves the nerve, blood and lymphatic supply. The goals of reflexology are to re-educate, re-pattern and re-condition the nerves. When the nerves improve, the instruction improves, the body must improve, thus, an overall health enhancement therapy program through Medical Reflexology.
