The beneficial consequences of pressure on certain areas of the human body
The massage compresses and stimulates specific points in the feet, energetically related to organs and devices. In fact, the feet are sensitive to pressure points that refer directly to other organs of the body.
This allows to prevent and treat possible imbalances of the organism.
In other words from the foot can act as a reflex in each part of the body, resolve disturbances and restore the lost order. By touching the various points of the foot, for example those corresponding to the liver or kidney, the type of pain can be identified, whether it is a recent or old problem.
The right foot corresponds to the most rational part. On the other hand, the left foot corresponds to the emotion, that is, to fears, anxieties, etc.
