Reflexology is a focussed pressure technique, usually directed at the feet or hands. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflexes on different parts of the body which correspond to and are relative to all parts, glands and organs.
HOW DOES REFLEXOLOGY WORK?
When the reflexes are stimulated, the body’s natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones.
Pressure applied to any part of a zone will affect the entire zone and can be stimulated by working any reflex in that same zone.
Manipulating specific reflexes removes stress, activating a parasympathetic nervous system response in the body to enable the blockages to be released by a physiological change in the body. With stress removed and circulation enhanced, the body is allowed to return to a state of homeostasis.
Homeostasis is the “automatic” process that the body incorporates to bring it back to the “normal” state.
THE BENEFITS OF REFLEXOLOGY ARE:
- Relaxation with the removal of stress
- Enhanced cirulation
- Assists the body to normalize metabolisms naturally
- Complements all other healing modalities
Reflexology is thought to be useful for a variety of conditions including, but not limited to:
- Bone spurs
- Kidney infections
- Menstrual problems
- Back aches
- Shoulder Pain
- Weight gain
- Plantar Fasciatis
- and many more.
