Reflexology is based on the ancient Chinese theory that energy is flowing all around our bodies. If the energy can flow freely then we are balanced and healthy. If the energy is obstructed, illness may result. This method has been used for several thousands of years and is known to have been practised in a similar manner by the Chinese and the Egyptians.
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a form of “alternative” or “complementary” therapy and involves a method of using massage to reflex areas found in the feet and the hands. Most commonly, the feet are used as the areas to be treated.
In the feet, there are reflex areas corresponding to all the parts of the body. These areas are arranged in a way as to form a map of the body in the feet with the right foot corresponding to the right side of the body and the left foot corresponding to the left side of the body. By having the whole body represented in the feet, the method offers a means of treating the whole body and of treating the body as a whole. This is an important factor of a natural therapy and allows not only symptoms to e treated but also the causes of symptoms.
Reflexology does not claim to be a “cure-all” but numerous different disorders have been successfully treated by this method. Disorders include such things as migraine, sinus problems, hormonal imbalances, breathing disorders, digestive problems, circulatory problems, back problems and tension and stress.
