"A natural healing art, based on the principle that there are reflexes
in the feet and hands which correspond to every part of the body." By stimulating and applying pressure to the feet or hands,
you are increasing circulation and promoting specific bodily and muscular functions.
Imagine stepping on a tack. Your whole body reacts because of something perceived by the foot.
Reflexology with a full range of pressure sensors, utilizes the same body system of fight or flight to relax the body." Indeed,
the feet and hands are more sensitive than most people realize. Similar to how we use our eyes to detect light, the hands
and feet detect pressure, stretch, movement and weight distribution.
The 1996 China Reflexology Symposium Report has found foot reflexology
to be 93.63% effective in treating 63 disorders. After an analysis of 8,096 clinical cases, Dr. Wang Liang reported that reflexology
was significantly effective (the cure) in 48.68% of all the cases, and an effective/improved treatment in 44.95% of the cases
Another study, in Britain, had fifteen women receive half-hour reflexology sessions for eight weeks.
The findings included noticable physical and emotional improvements, increased self-esteem and confidence, an ability to stay
motivated and be heard and taken seriously, and an improvement in concentration.
"Everything you do can be done better
from a place of relaxation".
