Happy Reflexing Everyone!
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is the science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. A certified reflexologist, like myself, knows how to apply pressure to these reflex areas with thumb and fingers.
Eunice Ingham (I call her the Mother of Reflexology) developed and taught special techniques to accurately and effectively use reflexology to create a therapeutic effect. She also taught to heal, one needs relaxation, which is why doctors usually prescribe good rest and taking it easy. Reflexology makes us relax... almost whether we want to or not. (Joke... not really). Living in todays' world requires us to be in "fight or flight" almost non-stop. This is known as sympathetic nervous response, or "all systems go". When we relax, the nervous system goes into homeostasis(balancing) mode or parasympatheic. Time for healing and good feeling. Ever notice how good you feel during and after a foot rub? Reflexology is a foot rub times 10!
I work mainly on the feet... hands by request only!... Reasons: the feet are our connection to the Earth, our stable ground. We receive healing from the Earth through our porous feet. We are also held up from the Earth by our feet. They're the foundations of bodies. Our whole body can be thrown off balance if our foundation(the feet) is off. If the feet are not reflexed, the body can become very stagnant and lack circulation. So, from me and mother Earth, "Please have your feet reflexed". If not from me then another certified reflexologist. Feel free to call me for a referral to a reflexologist in your area.
