One of the crucial ways in which Reflexology may be used is through the use of pressure points on the whole body. Stress points refer to targeted areas on the body that allow for better blood circulation, thus allowing for increased general wellness. For example, there's a particular pressure point known as the acupoints located close to the wrist. By applying pressure on these acupoints, the reflex points found in the wrist begin to transfer blood circulation to the whole body, including the skin. By increasing blood flow, the whole body can maximize its immune system and work more effectively to fight infection and heal itself.
