Reflexology is considered to be a non-invasive and natural therapy based on Chinese medical theory, combining examination, treatment and health care. Reflexology has the effect of facilitating blood circulation, regulating the nervous system and dredging channels and collaterals. Generally, reflexology contains both lavipeditum and foot massage treatments.
The principle of lavipeditum lies in the warming, mechanical and chemical functions of water and the therapeutic effects of medical steam and liquid. Lavipeditum can be divided into Normal Hot Water Therapy and Medical Lavipeditum Therapy. The effects of lavipeditum include improving blood circulation, promoting metabolism, relieving fatigue, improving sleeping quality and preserving health and even beauty.
The process can cure or treat a number of diseases, including, hypertension, heart disease, liver cirrhosis, various kinds of ulcers, high blood pressure, aneurysms, coughs, asthma, rheumatism, the common cold, insomnia, angina and arthritis among other conditions.
