Although reflexology is usually performed on the feet it is also highly effective as a hand treatment. Hands are usually associated with “doing and giving” so it is quite profound to receive a treatment on them with tender loving care from another person. The fingers and thumbs are amongst the 3 most sensitive areas of the body. Sensory pathways from these areas stimulate the brain and provide deep sensations of well-being. The hands are linked with our emotional side remember the saying cold hands warm heart our hands sweat when we are nervous and glow when we are exited and happy. We rub our hands with glee and wring them with despair. Our hands unconsciously display what we are feeling inside.
