Why Reflexology

The entire body is reflected on the feet through a system of reflexes. The application of pressure to the reflex points promotes vital energy that runs vertically through the body (right foot corresponds to right side of the body and left foot to the left side). In essence, the body is controlled by what is equivalent to an electrical system, with many “on” and “off” switches. There are “main circuits” to every organ, gland and nerve, and these circuits have endings or pressure points, in your hands and feet, and other parts of your body. By working these pressure points, you not only stop pain, but you also send renewed forces to all parts of the body by opening up closed “electrical lines” that have shut off the universal life force.

Tenderness at particular points, which are commonly found in the feet and hands, usually indicate congestion within the body. When the blood flow is slowed in any place by obstruction, that place or organ becomes sluggish, just as a pond becomes stagnant when running water no longer flows through it. When these lines are clogged malfunctioning glands and organs make you ill. Pain, discomfort, and many diseases anywhere in the body may be eliminated by working the reflexes in the corresponding zones of the feet. Through reflexology you may be able to reduce the causes and symptoms of sickness and pain from virtually every part of the body.

Early man was healthy because of this natural reflex pressure achieved during his daily activities; he stepped on objects that pressed into his feet while roaming over plains and through forests. This physical contact reached the tiny electrical reflexes in the feet and create a natural massage. This natural form of stimulation broke and loosened any small crystals that might have formed there in the nerve structures or blood vessels, cleared the congestion and restored the flow of blood to the relevant part of the body. The modern man rarely encounters this natural stimulation in the feet. Reflexology provides the appropriate electrical stimuli to the portion of the body to which that part of the foot corresponds; improving the body to its natural rhythm and balance.

Reflexology is simple, safe and affordable for anyone to use. Its simplicity can be disarming but there can be no question of its effectiveness in improving health and vitality to individuals of any age without the use of drugs, special equipment, medication or needles. The renewing power of reflexology is Nature’s way to perfect health. When you apply reflexology you stimulate more than 7,000 nerves in the feet, which can encourage the opening and clearing of neural pathways, thus helping the body to return to its natural rhythms.

Research has shown how effective reflexology is in relieving both tension headaches and migraines.

* 220 patients presenting headaches (migraine or tension) as their primary problem were treated by 78 Reflexologists over a 3 month period.

Result: 16% reported they were cured, 65% said that reflexology had help, 18% were unchanged. (NBHC, Denmark, 1995)

*42 women (aged 20-60) participated in a study to assess the impact of reflexology on chronic constipation. Result: the average number of days between bowel movements was reduced from 4.4 to 1.8. (FDZ - Danish Reflexology Association, 1992)
