foot massage reflexology
Foot massage or foot reflexology has a Chinese origin. It dates back to more than 3,000 years ago and is used in the prevention and cure of many health ailments.
The principle of foot massage rests in the premise that the meridian network connects all tissues, organs and cells in our body. Each organ in the body is connected to a specific reflex point on the foot through the intermediary of 300 nerves.
A trained foot reflexologist can put pressure on different meridians or energy lines on the sole and side of the feet to determine the cause of illness. By using pressure to these the reflex points, a foot massage is good for stimulating the activity of internal organs, and improving blood and lymph circulation. The top to bottom well being of a person can be made through the foot.
The principles of foot massage are not in congruence with western allopathic medicine. Western medicine sees the foot as a body part comprising of bones, ligaments and joints. However, foot massage is fast gaining much popularity and acceptance as an alternative health Treatment.
In line with other Asian therapeutic techniques, foot reflexology is a holistic treatment. It focuses on treating the whole person and not just the symptoms of a particular disease.
Through a gentle yet effective therapy, foot massage reflexology relieves tension and clears blockages by stimulating sensory receptors in the nerve fibres of the foot.
As a result, energy is produced that branches to the spinal cord where it is dispersed throughout the entire nervous system.
It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet.
A foot massage reflexology session greatly relaxes the body, thereby reducing any constriction of blood vessels and improving circulation.
In turn, it helps to break up and dissolve crystal deposits caused by an excess of uric acid, which has built up in the body and settled in the feet.
During a foot massage reflexology treatment, endorphins are released into the bloodstream, easing aches and pains, promoting a feeling of deep relaxation and balance in those treated.
Chinese foot reflexology massage helps restore and maintain the bodies natural equilibrium and encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance.
