About Foot Reflexology

Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain anywhere in the body by stimulating pressure points on the feet. The neurological theory behind reflexology states that reflex areas in the feet correspond to all the glands, organs and musculoskeletal systems in the human body. From maps of predefined pressure points, therapists work on reflex zones in the feet using their thumbs and fingers to exert controlled pressure on the foot.

Pressure points are reputed to connect directly through the nervous system and affect the bodily organs and glands. The therapist manipulates the pressure points according to specific techniques of reflexology. By means of this touching therapy, any part of the body that is the source of pain, illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of pressure at the respective foot location.

Reflexology works similar to acupuncture which incites one single point whereas reflexology affects the surrounding skin and underlying structures by pressure point massage. A treatment achieves improved blood circulation, increases stamina, improves the balance between body and soul, and can simply promote relaxation.

There are 7000 nerve endings in each foot. They each correspond to organs, glands, or other parts of the body

The soles of our feet have more nerve endings than almost any other part of the body. As we constantly step on them, these nerve endings supply valuable environmental information to our brain, adjusting the way we walk to protect bones and joints.

What can reflexology do for you?

Wearing shoes all day, combined with stress, illness, lack of hydration, and inactivity can cause muscle tissue to weaken and blood flow to stagnate. Blood stagnation can culminate with waste matter collecting in the feet. The waste matter forms crystalline deposit from urate crystals and calcium at key nerve endings located in the feet. The health and balance of your body and its organs are dependent on the nourishment provided by healthy circulation.

Reflexology treatments can be used as a therapeutic natural healing method or for relaxation. Treatments promote healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood. In the process, reflexology not only quells the sensation of pain, but relieves the source of the pain as well.

Many physicians consider reflexology a good supplementary healing along with conventional treatments. This natural healing method often speeds up recovery processes. Therapists do not make diagnosis nor prescribe any conventional medicine. For these matters, consult your doctor.

In the absence of any particular ailment or abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it is for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness.
