Reflexology

Reflexology

Is often known as a specialist massage of the feet.

The massage takes in the whole of a person’s body which is mapped on particularly areas of each foot within each sole the foot has 72,000 nerve endings for the reflexologist to soothe.

Reflexolgy has been known to lift stress and helping with relaxation over time promoting physical states of relaxation over time by switching a persons conscious body control to their unconconscious with a simple preliminary foot massage.

As the nerves in the feet are massaged a freer flow of blood and lymph to the cells is stimulated.  This circulatory effect is crucial to health.  Good circulation is of utmost importance in nourishing the cells and eliminating waste from the cells.  The body’s natural ability to heal and repair itself is thereby released.

Decongestion allows the free flow of energy around the body and when the channels are free, less energy is actually needed to supply nutrients throughout the body.

Treatments vary from a relaxing one-off treatment concentrating on a specific area to a course of six treatments, which can create a deeper feeling of wellbeing.

One person remarked, “I feel energized from the feet up!”

Although most people remark that they feel relaxed after a reflexology treatment, it can go the other way.

Reflexology stimulates the endocrine system and the organs.

Reflexology can alleviate:-

          • Tension
          • Ear, nose and throat problems
          • Neck, shoulders and back pains
          • Digestive disorders
          • Respiratory problem
          • Urinary troubles
          • Reproductive problems
          • General lethargy

As physical waste can be stuck in the body, emotional pain can lodge there too. Freeing up a person’s body, means freeing up the emotional energy. The purpose is to create more harmony and wellbeing.

The more free a person is, the more space there is for new ideas, people, things and possibilities.

Reflexology can be done on the hands as well. Just by doing a simple hand massage one is affecting similar areas to those on the feet.

Once upon a flight the lady next to me and by the window said that she was squeamish about planes landing. As she was also a musician I busied myself massaging her hands and fingers very thoroughly. She was cooing about how relaxed and supple her hands were when the plane landed.  She had not noticed that we were about to land at all.

One night I was sharing a taxi back to my village with a girl who was a complete stranger. She had worked a long hard day. So I asked if I could give her hand a massage and she simply gave me her hand.  One hand done, she immediately gave me the other.  Her tensions and upset melted away.  She confessed that she had decided to relinquish her plan for vengeance on her sister when she arrived home.
