REFLEXOLOGY

WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?

Reflexology is a complementary healing technique that has existed throughout history, with the first evidence of this art dating back to 2300 B.C. in Egyptian drawings. It is a technique whereby the practitioner uses her palm, fingers and thumbs to stimulate and apply pressure to reflex points on the feet and hands.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Reflexology is based on the theory that there are reflex areas in the hands and feet that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes has one or more of the following effects on the corresponding areas:

· stimulates nerve pathways · enhances energy pathways · promotes detoxification

· opens up circulatory and lymphatic pathways · releases endorphins to reduce pain

· enhances muscle relaxation · brings about deep relaxation

By doing so, Reflexology helps bring more oxygen and nutrients to the reflexed area and enhances all function of detoxification. As a result, reflexology helps heal and re-balance the whole body and not just the prevailing symptoms.

REPORTED HEALTH BENEFITS

Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium. It has been shown to be effective for pain management, sports injuries, joint problems, hormonal imbalances, sleep disorders, digestive disorders, congestive symptoms, detoxification and more. Most importantly reflexology facilitates deep relaxation, which in turn help heal many stress-related conditions. Reflexology can be a valuable addition to any healing protocol that involves boosting immune function, internal healing, nerve-hormone balance or anxiety related health problems.

A REFLEXOLOGY SESSION

A reflexology session typically lasts 60 min (feet) to 90 min (feet + hands). The practitioner works both feet and hands in a systematic manner, employing various stimulation and pressure techniques and varying degrees of pressure. Each session is tailored specifically to meet the health needs of the individual. Often, the practitioner will include other holistic modalities such as deep breathing, therapeutic essential oil, dry brushing, or hot stones to increase the benefits of the treatment. A series of three to ten sessions is typically recommended to realize desired health benefits.
