REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is a gentle art, a fascinating science and an extremely effective form of therapeutic foot massage stimulating key acupressure points used by over 25,000 practitioners worldwide. Our feet connect us to the ground and they are therefore a connection between our earthly and spiritual life. They ground us literally and figuratively. When the reflexes are stimulated, reflexologists believe that the crystal-like deposits on nerve endings are crushed and lactic acid is reduced and carried away by the blood. An involuntary response is elicited in organs and glands connected by energy pathways to these specific reflexes. The increased circulation carries away waste and allows the body to heal itself.

The body is divided into ten vertical zones: five on the right and five on the left. Zone one begins in the thumb, travels to the hand, arm, shoulder, neck and face, down the front and back of the body, down the leg and foot, and ends with the big toe.

Reflexologists successfully treat headaches including migraine; back, neck, shoulder arm and leg pain; asthma; sinus problems; heart and lung difficulties; urinary problems; and even eye disorders. In December 1993, Obstetrics and Gynecology published the following single study: "They reviewed the response to reflexology of the ear, hand, and foot in thirty-eight women with premenstrual symptoms. In this randomized, controlled study, the subjects all believed that they were being treated with reflexology. However, half were receiving simple massage not directed at specific points; the others got points massaged on the ears, hands and feet which were selected because of their postulated connection to organs that contribute to the symptoms of PMS-the ovaries, the uterus, portions of the nervous system, and various hormone-secreting glands. The two groups reacted differently. Symptoms improved in only 17 percent of those who were simply massaged. By contrast, 46 percent of the group treated with reflexology had a definite reduction in the severity of complaints."

Conditions Benefited by Reflexology:Asthma, Eye Disorders, Heart and Lung difficulties, PMS, Urinary problems.
