Reflexology is an ancient method for activating the healing powers of the body.
It is based on the principle that there are energy zones that run throughout the body and that by applying pressure to specific reflex points on the feet and hands we can release energy blocks along these pathways, thus effecting the corresponding organs, glands, and body parts within that zone.
The feet are the mirrors of our body. They are our foundation. They ground us, literally and figuratively. Feet are our contact with the earth and the energies that flow through it.
Through manual treatment of the feet, Reflexology can help assist with: allergies, amenorrhea, arthritis, asthma, bladder issues, chronic fatigue syndrome, constipation, cystitis, digestive issues, elimination of blood toxins, fatigue, fibromyalgia, fertility issues, gynecologic disorders, improved blood supply, insomnia, incontinence, neck pain, pain management, peripheral neuropathy, post menopausal symptoms, releasing holding patterns, restoration of homeostasis, sciatica, spine problems and stress related disorders.
Many of our health problems can be linked to stress. It is an acknowledged fact by the medical community that a body trying to function while under the influence of prolonged stress is less capable of organizing its defenses against illnesses and repair damage caused by injury.
Reflexology can negate the effects of stress while it helps the body relax and balance itself. Through the relaxation process the body is more capable of dealing with the stresses placed on it by daily living and those associated with illness. Reflexology gently nudges the body toward better function by improving lymphatic drainage, venous circulation, stimulation to the nerve pathways and muscle relaxation.
