What is reflexology?
Reflexology originates from ancient methods of Chinese healing techniques. It revolves around the theory that by applying pressure to your feet, you regain connection to the earth, through your body, into the earth and back up. The preternatural force we channel goes to the universe and flows to the heavens. Reflexology encourages the natural flow of your chi or lifeforce to gain renewed energy, vigour, positivity and enthusiasm for life.
There is a theory that when something happens to one part of the body, the whole body feels it. Think of the knee-jerk response when someone taps you below the knee and your knees and feet bounce. Reflexology draws from that theory. When pressure is applied correctly to specific points on your hands and feet by a seasoned reflexology therapist, healing occurs in other parts of your body.
The human body is amazing and its ability to heal from major injuries, small cuts and emotional trauma is truly phenomenal. The body system and organs continuously work together as a single unit to repair and heal broken muscles and bones. Energy is pivotal to the process. There are about 7,000 – 7,200 nerves ending in your body and each is connected to a body part. Through special manipulation of reflex points in your foot, the required energy flow the body needs to heal is triggered.
Only a certified reflexology therapist can perform this massage in a holistic manner that covers all the minute reflex points. When the therapist notices an imbalance, detected as crystals in the affected reflex point, they disperse the crystal blocking energy channels and restore natural flow in your body. Visible signs of imbalance include skin discolouration, hard skin, bunions and marks on the foot. Each treatment session last between 30-50 minutes but you’ll require a few treatment sessions to rejuvenate the reflexes completely and see result.
Six healing benefits of reflexology
- Enhanced nerve function
Nerve endings in most part of the human body become less sensitive as you age, especially in extremities. Reflexology stimulates 7,000 unique nerve endings within a single session to increase reactivity and function. When you work these neural pathways, you’ll see improved flexibility in your body.
- Stress relief
A major benefit of reflexology massage is the immediate relief from stress. The technique of thumb and finger walking in a set square before kneading and massaging the foot with the whole hand is painless, gentle yet firm and brings about a deep feeling of relaxation and peace.
- Pain relief
Certain illnesses in the body is caused by blockage to energy channels. The flow of chi is necessary for good mental and physical wellbeing. When its’ disrupted, your body suffers disease, pain and gathers negative energy flow. Reflexology promotes self-healing by restoring the balance between body function and system. it takes out pain in the body and creates harmony.
- Increased energy levels and circulation
Reflexology improves circulation in your body. Such improved circulation ensures more effective circulation of oxygen and blood throughout the body. This oxygen reaches key system to increase metabolism, accelerate healing and rejuvenate damaged cells.
- Reduced headaches
Reflexology is an analgesic treatment used by many to reduce the effects of headaches and migraine. Muscles that were previously tensed before a massage session enjoy relief which leads to reduced pain from headaches. Stress-induced headache or psychological factors that physically manifest as migraine also lessen.
- Easing side effects from chemotherapy
Please note that reflexology doesn’t cure cancer but it helps manage pain and other symptoms of chemotherapy. Cancer patients enjoy lower anxiety levels, increased length of sleep time and reduced vomiting from indigestion.
