REFLEXOLOGY

< back    

         

Reflexology states that there are reflex areas in the hands and feet that correspond to every part of the body, including organs and glands and that these parts can be affected by stimulating the appropriate reflex areas. Reflexology is used to relieve stress and tension, stimulate deep relaxation, improve the blood supply, and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses to normalize and balance the entire body.

          Reflexology evolved out of an earlier European system known as zone therapy, and was introduced to America by William Fitzgerald's work as the basis for what is know today as reflexology. Ingham mapped organ relaxes on the feet and developed techniques for inducing a stimulating, healing effect in those areas.

          Reflexologists apply precise pressure to release blockages that inhibit energy flow and cause pain and disease. This pressure is believed to affect internal organs and glands by stimulating reflex points of the body. Modern reflexologists continue to witness startling effects from their treatments.
