Everyday life can take quite a toll on our body and mind. Daily strain and stress are common contributors to aches, discomfort and pains. If not treated these issues often intensify and lead to distress and disease in our body as well as mental dysfunction. Reflexology is a great way to deal with these conditions and help restore happiness, harmony and health. Reflexology has been found to help re-balance, re-energize, rejuvenate, reprogram and restore the energy systems of our body and mind.
As mentioned in previous blog posts all forms of touch for health are extremely powerful because they provide the body soothing support to help it rebalance, reconnect, refresh, relax and renew. Reflexology offers many benefits from a fairly simple process. We can give our self the gift of reflexology or we can engage another person to give us this gift. Like massage we can do reflexology almost any time and any where. While most reflexology focuses on the feet we can also do simple reflexology on our hands to receive benefits.
Reflexology is the process of stimulating reflex points on the feet to help maintain good health. This is based on the theory that every part of the body corresponds to a very precisely located point on our feet. By applying pressure to these reflex points we can rebalance, relax and reset the whole body to help a wide range of disorders. Headaches can be helped by pressure on the big toe. Stomach problems can be treated by pressure just below the ball of the foot. Sensitivity in an area of the feet could indicate disorders in a specific part of the body. People are often amazed at the accuracy of reflexology in pinpointin details about the state of ones health. Our feet are very complex structures and foot problems can result in many interconnected issues. Bunions, calluses, corns and poor fitting shoes are just some of the many causes of problems in the feet and corresponding parts of the body.
Reflexology helps activate energy meridians that connect our brain, glands, nervous system, organs, skin and tissues. By relaxing and re-energizing a particular point it allows other energetically connected zones to be reset and restored. Anything we do to improve circulation, energy flow and neuron impulses will create more resilience and synergy through out the body and brain. By focusing on reflexology and touch for health we can provide early intervention and even prevention measures to minimize and maybe avoid causes that may result in disease. All health issues start at the cellular level as disturbances, energy blockages or imbalances. Reflexology has a long history of helping support our happiness, healing and health.
To learn reflexology requires a basic understanding of the mapping of the body system onto the feet and hands. With a genuine desire to learn these correlations between body and feet we are able to begin providing therapeutic touch for the benefit of our self or others. Begin with either foot and starting at the toes work your way down to the heel by applying pressure to specific reflex points on the feet that correspond to points in and on the body. It is very helpful to refer to a diagram of the reflex points to provide the best results. By paying attention and tuning in to specific feedback regarding the points on the foot it is possible to determine various stages of balance or imbalance. Reflexology can help with opening up the energy flow through the body and then a person may notice subtle energy shifts and signs.
A daily round of foot or hand reflexology is one of the best things we can do to help promote happiness, healing and health. Even a quick foot or hand reflexology round can help us feel great and help prevent distress and dysfunction from leading into early stages of disease.
