Reflexologists work to unblock energy pathways that have been clogged up with toxins by stimulating specific reflex areas on the feet that correspond to different organs and the energy pathways in the body. This optimizes the functioning of the organs by improving blood flow to them and increasing lymphatic fluid movement to get rid of toxins. There are many toxins in the environment such as, pollution, radiation, chemicals, pesticides and medication. This causes accumulation of toxins and energy blockages in our bodies. When toxins accumulate, our bodies warn us in the form of pain and other symptoms.
