Reflexology is sometimes known as Zone Therapy as the body is divided into different zones represented by a point in the foot or hand. Nerve endings are embedded in the feet and hands that then travel to the spinal cord and to various parts of the body. Stimulating these nerve endings thereby helps promote relaxation, improve circulation, stimulate vital organs in the body and encourage the body’s natural healing processes. Unlike conventional medicine, reflexology works on the underlying problems within the body and works through the body’s nervous system. Sometimes lactic acid can be felt in the foot in the form of little crystals. This is a sediment due to poor eating or lack of exercise and can be crushed and reabsorbed into the body thereby allowing the lymph system to eliminate the waste product.
The treatment involves light, but firm, compression massage to the soles and uppers of your feet possibly using talc/reflexology cream. During treatment some areas of the foot may feel a little tender and these will correlate with the problem areas in the body.
Reflexology should not be used if pregnant. You will find that reflexology is typically a very pleasant, relaxing and rejuvenating therapy. Don’t worry if you have ticklish feet, the treatment is very precise and quite firm. Reflexology can treat nearly all health problems. Although all reflex areas will be massaged, the therapist will pay specific attention to the actual problem area. So, for migraines, strokes, multiple sclerosis, etc. pressure will be applied to the reflex point in the foot or hand that relates to the head and the connecting areas.
Reflexology will not fix problems such as broken bones or hernias but if used regularly it will enhance any other treatments you are receiving by keeping the circulation stimulated and the lymph system active. You should also experience feelings of vitality and well-being after reflexology treatment which encourages the healing process throughout the body.
