Reflexology can help your health condition

Reflexology works in harmony with our natural healing mechanism and its tendency to maintain homeostasis throughout the human body.

Reflexology works in harmony with our natural healing mechanism and its tendency to maintain homeostasis throughout the human body. Homeostasis is an inherently individualized balanced state of physical and emotional wellness. According to Chinese Traditional Medicine, disease occurs when the body is imbalanced.

Since the body is programmed to detect the slightest imbalance in any of its organs or glands, it strives to attack and normalize any abnormality it senses. To alert us to any potential health threats, the body sends warning signals throughout its different parts, including the feet. The feet are the best place to detect those signs, as they show the signs long before they can be detected in a physical exam or lab test.

The more than 7,000 nerve endings in each foot correspond to every cell, tissue, gland and organ in the body. The body naturally eliminates wastes through the skin and other sensory organs; however, some harmful toxins like uric acid (commonly known as crystals) are deposited on the bottom of the feet.

Reflexology is a great health modality because it provides early detection that can lead to prevention. A professional reflexologist is capable of aligning the body to do its self-healing work. Hand techniques are used to press and stimulate the reflex points in the feet, improving blood circulation, assisting the detoxification process and promoting relaxation, all of which are means of balancing internal body functions.

In other words, reflexology supports the body’s main job to maintain, balance and protect its organs from any foreign invaders, regardless of their medical names or conditions. Reflexology works.

Note: If you have a severe medical condition, consult with your health care provider before beginning any new treatments or therapies.
