Reflexology is a simple form of natural, complimentary, and holistic healing. Reflexology should not be confused with massage. It is a therapeutic manipulation of the reflexes in the feet to keep the body systems working efficiently. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way (naturespathwaysonline.com). In Reflexology, special techniques are used to break up and remove blockages in the body and restore proper circulation of blood to any given area. Reflexology is based on the principle that there are areas, or reflex points, on the feet that correspond to each organ, gland, and structure in the body. By working on these reflex areas, the therapist is able to reduce tension and affect change in the addressed areas.
The focus of Reflexology is on the feet where the nerve endings are located. The feet mirror the entire body and every organ and body part can be found in them.
In these nerve endings, crystalline deposits form wherever there is a blockage of blood or energy. With the special techniques used in Reflexology, these deposits can easily be broken up and released into the blood stream for proper elimination.
A Reflexology session is both relaxing and stimulating. Since the feet are the only area being addressed, there is never any need for removal of clothing. The client rests in a heated anti-gravity chair, fully clothed (minus socks & shoes) during a session.
Reflexology can be used as a self healing art as well. It can be used to balance emotions, restore circulation throughout the physical body, and increase spiritual awareness. While increasing circulation in the brain, it can improve concentration and the ability to meditate. Reflexology can relieve insomnia and help in lowering blood pressure.
