Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet (and the hands) which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. A reflexology treatment is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas. Reflexology is great for relieving stress and tension, improving blood supply and promoting the unblocking of nerve impulses. It helps the body to achieve a state of homeostasis.
Because there are more than 7200 nerve endings in each foot probably explains why we feel so much better when our feet have been treated. Nerve endings in the feet have extensive interconnections through the spinal chord and brain with all areas of the body.
The body has the ability to heal itself following illness, stress, injury or disease. If the body is in a state of imbalance the vital energy pathways are blocked preventing the body from functioning effectively then reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body equilibrium and encourage healing. It is a treatment that uses pressure point on the feet relating to the zones of energy in the body. Congestion in any one of these zones can cause anxiety or discomfort. By stimulating the relevant points on the foot the body can be encouraged to release the free flow of energy and reduce discomfort.
Reflexology will help energy move through the body as a whole, eliminate toxins and encourage total relaxation. This therapy is particularly suitable for backache, migraine, menstrual disorders and any stress related conditions.
I use my hands only to apply gentle pressure to the feet. For each client the application and the effect of the therapy is unique. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse. Talc is used as a medium in most cases but if you really want to treat yourself kindly you can have aromatherapy oils mixed specifically for you, and have an aromatherapy reflexology treatment.
Whilst reflexology has its focus on the feet it is invaluable in helping to restore your own vital energy flow.
