Reflexology – More Than Just A Foot Rub!

Reflexology is an holistic therapy that treats the whole body by treating reflex points on the feet or hands.

But how does it work?

There are several theories as to how and why Reflexology works. The hands and feet are seen as a microcosm of the whole body. There are 10 ‘zone lines’ that run the length of the body, in line with the fingers and toes. Any gland, organ or skeletal structure within a zone can be affected by applying pressure in the same zone on the feet. For example, the shoulder reflexes are on the outer edges of the feet below the little toe – and anything on the centre line of the body – the bladder, or the neck – will have reflex points on the inner edges of the feet or hands.
The feet and hands have more nerve endings than any other part of the body. All nerves travel through the body to the spinal cord and up to the brain. It makes sense that if we affect the nerve endings in our extremities, then we affect the whole body. We are of course affecting the entire nervous system by doing Reflexology.
It is estimated that 75% of all illnesses are caused by stress. Reflexology is immensely relaxing and benefits the whole body, putting all your body’s systems back into balance. There are so many stresses in modern living, mental and emotional as well as physical/environmental. Reflexology’s ability to redress the balance and clear toxins from our system can only be of benefit to us all.

Reflexology is a great way to look after your health. It is both preventative and curative, so whether you have health issues that need addressing or you want to make sure you stay in top form, Reflexology can help.

Vertical Reflex Therapy, or V.R.T. is an extension of traditional Reflexology. Reflex points on the tops of the feet are worked whilst you are standing, which results in deeper access to reflexes which has a more profound effect.

  1. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
    one thing that I think I would by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me.
    I’m having a look ahead for your subsequent post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
