September 18th - September 24th
|Intl Council of Reflexologists
A week to celebrate this form of therapy and to increase awareness of it. Reflexology is a scientific art based on the premise that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all the body parts. The physical act of applying specific pressure using thumb, finger and hand techniques results in stress reduction—and causes a physiological change in the body. Reflexology groups and associations around the world observe this week and reach out to their communities. Annually, the last full week in September.
