Ayurvedic reflexology is based on the principles of Ayurveda, India’s ancient, traditional medical system. The focus for Ayurvedic Reflexology is to help balance the subtle energy systems of the body by supporting the efficient flow of vital energy called “prana”. Prana flows within the body through energy channels called nadis (similar to the Chinese meridians). According to Ayurvedic teachings, the body (and mind) cannot remain healthy if the flow of prana is sluggish or interrupted.
The person receiving any type of reflexology remains clothed and seated in a chair with their feet available to the therapist.
