Reflexology has become a well respected ADJUNCT to regular medical
care. It is used in Hospitals, by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors
to enhance MOST forms of medical treatments.
It is not a "miracle" or a "faith healing" type thing. Sometimes, like other therapies, it takes a few sessions.
Foot reflexology can help ease the pain of achy joints and muscles,
relieve headaches and toothaches, improve the functioning of major
systems of the body.
Foot Reflexology works by applying
pressure at specific points on the bottom of the foot. This is not the
same as acupressure or acupuncture.
In fact, the only thing that is the same is that medical science can't prove how it works...they just know it does!!
There are over 7,200 nerve endings at the bottom of each foot. Nerves
connect to every organ, every limb and region of the body through the
brain and spinal column. It is thought that foot reflexology works in
much the same way. Even though we don't actually work the nerve endings,
the correlation of the bottom of the feet to every region of the body
definitely exists. It was originally called "The Zone" therapy in the
early 20th century and was successfully organized into a comprehensive
therapy by a physical therapist, Eunice Ingham in the '40s. She coined
the term "reflexes" when referring to this therapy.
reflexology can increase the blood flow to the part of the body being
worked, which in turn increases the oxygen going to that part.
The increased blood flow helps take away toxins that build up in each cell of the body each day.
This brings more health and vitality to the region plus adds a sense of
over-all well-being. When our feet feel good, we feel good!

realize that foot reflexology is NOT a substitute for medical treatment,
you are always encouraged to seek professional medical help when
needed, however, this therapy can be used in conjunction with most
treatments for most conditions.
Please, if being treated by a
medical professional, get that professional's permission before doing
foot reflexology for that medical condition. Thanks.
