Reflexology

Reflexology is a method for activating the healing power of the body. It is practiced mainly on your feet which have thousands of nerves endings and interconnections through the spinal cord and brain to all areas of the body. It’s a great way to restore healthy balance to your body’s vital life systems.

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is an alternative treatment for a variety of conditions and has been in use for thousands of years. It involves the reflexologist applying pressure to specific areas in the hands, feet, and ears that affect certain reflex areas of the body.

Thousands of physicians across the globe have been using reflexology for generations, with surprisingly positive results. If there are treatments for more than a dozen health conditions affecting various parts of the body, isn’t it worth giving reflexology a try?

Benefits of Reflexology

The health benefits of reflexology include its ability to improve the nerve functions, raise energy levels, increase circulation, and much more.

Improved Nerve Function

As we age, our nerve endings become less sensitive in many parts of our body, particularly in our extremities. That being said, reflexology has been connected with stimulating more than 7,000 different nerve endings in a single session, thereby increasing their function and reactivity. Opening and cleaning out neural pathways can help improve functionality and flexibility in many areas around the body. Neural pathways are like muscles, so it is good to work them once in a while to keep them sharp!

Your therapist will focus on “reflex areas” on your feet that correspond with the muscles and organs of your body. Reflexology increases the flow of energy, increases circulation and stimulates all organ systems.

A recent study in Japan showed that stimulation of reflexology areas on the foot corresponding to the eye, shoulder and small intestine, induced a somatosensory response which could be observed using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

This study would appear to confirm what Reflexologists have known from observing and successfully treating many patients – that the effects of stimulation of the reflexes in the foot are demonstrable scientifically.

Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium. This gentle therapy encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance.

Reflexology has been shown to be effective for back pain, migraine, infertility, arthritis, sleep disorders, hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders and stress related conditions.

The number of reflexology sessions varies and is determined by your health and your reasons for seeking reflexology. Results from reflexology are often subtle and are cumulative. You are more likely to see greater benefits from regular sessions (for example, once a week for seven weeks) than if you have one session every six months.

If you are dealing with a specific illness or condition, you may need to have more frequent sessions.

A general recommendation is to begin with one session every week for 6-8 weeks, followed by a “tune-up” every four weeks.
