WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY & HOW CAN I BENEFIT FROM IT?
Reflexology is an ancient natural healing art based on the principles that there are reflex points in the hands and feet that correspond to the muscular, skeletal, endocrine, nervous, digestive systems together with body parts such as head, feet, arms and major organs including the heart, liver, womb, gall bladder and intestines. Interestingly enough our feet map out all of our body systems and parts!
With Reflexology I massage the particular reflex points found at the feet. In this way I treat the whole body through the specific points in the feet. This increases relaxation and therefore improves circulation. In return a balanced circulation in the feet assists the elimination of toxins and stress from the body!
In the feet, there are reflex areas corresponding to all the parts of the body. These areas are arranged in such a way as to form a map of the body in the feet with the right foot corresponding to the right side of the body and the left foot corresponding to the left side of the body. By having the whole body represented in the feet, the method offers a means of treating the whole body. This is an important factor as I do not only treat the condition but also the underlying emotions that are causing the pain in the feet and corresponding part of the body.
Through application of pressure on these reflexes, I am able to relieve tension, improve circulation and promote the natural function of the related areas of the body. Through Reflexology I help my clients to restore balance and promote natural health and vitality.
The body has the innate ability to heal itself. Our bodies are put off balance by stress, unhealthy diets, injuries, traumas, chronic illness and medications. This leads to our vital energy pathways getting blocked. Our body has an innate intelligence. Once a particular area is blocked, it creates alternative pathways of energy. But this is not the normal thing. So the body gets in a state of dis-ease.
During the session, the client remains fully clothed except for the shoes and socks. I make them comfortable. I use the couch or the chair according to the ability of the client. I choose the right essential oil to complement the full benefit of reflexology to my client. I apply pressure to the reflex points. Now we are all unique. So I keep eye contact and use the pressure which is comfortable for my client.
My experienced sensitive hands feel the tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet. I work on these points to release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. I release the tense areas and ultimately increase circulation and eliminate toxins from the feet. In so doing I assist the specific organ, system and body part to elimate the toxins and ultimately regain perfect health and vitality.
This is the beauty of Reflexology. Through working on the feet, I not only relax the feet but also help the relative body part, organ or system of the body to get back in shape and therefore my client will feel relaxed and serene. Often my clients sleep during the session as the body feels lighter and happier.
WHAT SPECIFIC CONDITIONS DOES REFLEXOLOGY TREAT?
Reflexology treats the whole person and is not limited to a particular disease. In my 15 years' experience with Reflexology, I have treated a wide range of men and women with a variety of conditions.
My clients varied from sports injuries to others with ''wear and tear'' problems such as knee and ankle conditions. I have had seniors who complain of arthritis and poor circulation. Others who suffer from autoimmune diseases. Others with chronic fatigue and pain have found it beneficial.
I have treated pregnant women who find reflexology particularly soothing during the last months of their pregnancy. With them I help them with their swollen feet. Through Reflexolgy I assist them to flush out the toxins from their lymphatic system.
I have helped clients who have sedentary jobs who find reflexology soothing and relaxing to their tired feet coming from constant long hours of seating. They also find reflexology beneficial to pains resulting from bad posture on their desks and today on the computer. So they benefit from pains in their eyes, shoulders and necks.
I have assisted others who due to their lifestyle complain of digestive and bowel conditions. Reflexology helps with constipation and other conditons such as IBS.
