Reflexology is an ancient skill that uses a compression technique on the feet to influence the entire body. A Reflexologist's aim is to understand the language of the feet, and to interpret it so that she can evaluate the body's vitality, improve ill health, and maintain stamina and vigour.
To the Reflexologist the foot is the map of the body which she learns to read as easily as a book. The key to "foot reading" is that we carry all of our unfinished business engraved on our body. The body "remembers" physical imbalance, emotional trauma, spiritual experience and everything that created an imbalance yet was never resolved.
The Reflexologist can identify many of these imbalances and their effects on the body by merely looking at the feet. Their shape speaks of the structure of the spine and of the flexibility of muscles and joints. Lines on the feet will identify congestion in different organs, lungs, stomach, intestines etc. Even calluses describe structural and emotional functions.
This information is used to formulate the session with each individual. Every session is unique. As the body improves a different type of session is required to maintain this exquisite sense of well-being. Even when better, many people continue "getting their feet done". It becomes a tune-up, a method of health maintenance, a protection against ill health. Prevention of disease costs less than correction.
More and more people are receiving Reflexology and experiencing its benefits. It is slowly becoming more acceptable therefore receiving the recognition it deserves.
Some possible reactions to a Reflexology treatment
- Release of pain - relaxation of nerves and muscle tension
- Runny nose or excess mucus - detoxification of sinuses
- Perspiration - release of excess fluids or detoxification through the skin
- Eyes watering - cleansing of lachrymal glands
- Gas release - improved stomach and bowel function
- Tiredness - body switches into parasympathetic mode (rest and digest)
- Nausea and headache - cleansing of toxins
- Temporary rash - release of toxins through the skin
- Greatly energized - system running cleaner
It is essential to drink plenty of water during the 24 hours following a treatment. This will allow for the speedy removal of toxins from the system reducing or eliminating some of the possible reactions.
