What is Reflexology
Reflexology, or reflexotherapy, has been used for quite a long time especially by the doctors or healers of Ancient China, India and Egypt, who were sure reflexology is a way to wake up organism’s sleeping vital forces.
It is a "pressure therapy" that involves applying focused pressure to certain known reflex points located in the foot to cure or prevent disease.
Naturopathy uses and recommends reflexology to their patients as one of the non-medicated methods of treatment in certain conditions.
In ancient times, we stimulate reflexes naturally by walking barefoot over rocks, stones and rough ground. In today’s modern world, we have lost much of nature’s way of maintaining a balanced and healthy equilibrium.
How Does Reflexology Work
Traditionally it is believed that energy flows through channels in the body. When these become blocked or depleted, parts of the body are starved of energy and become diseased.
Your body’s systems and organs have corresponding points on your feet. When the reflex zones or points are stimulated, the body’s natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones. There are 70,000 nerve endings in the feet which connect through the spinal cord to all parts of the body.
A reflexology session breaks up deposits which interfere with the flow of the body’s electrical energy in the nervous system. Manipulating specific reflex points removes stress, activating a parasympathetic response in the body to enable the blockages to be released by a physiological change in the body.
