The Maryland Reflexology Association (MDRA) is an independent, non-profit organization comprised of Professionals and Associates who are interested in advancing both knowledge and interest in Reflexology. The MDRA is not associated with, nor does it endorse any school, institute, reflexology curriculum, or instructor. Our mission is to provide information, education, and communication for Reflexology professionals as well as the general public. We encourage professional standards and provide a forum for local, regional and national concerns.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is the systematic application of pressure techniques to the feet and hands. The nerve pathways in each foot create an electrochemical flow that communicates with the entire nervous system. Each reflex point connects with a specific organ, gland or body part. Through the application of pressure using specific thumb and finger techniques, reflexology connects with the peripheral nervous system and encourages the body to relax and return to homeostasis or balance.
