Regardless of your health condition(s) (for example, migraine, nausea, sciatica, etc.), I will focus on the entire pattern of the reflexology therapy, starting at the toes and working down the foot. A complete reflexology therapy session uses many different techniques and includes all of the points on both feet (and perhaps the hands and ears).
By working all of the points, I address internal organs and glands as well as muscle groups, bones, nerve ganglions (solar plexus, brachial plexus) and nerves (sciatic) during a session.
If you have a specific condition, such as migraines, I will carefully feel and work the area corresponding to the presenting problem. However, I will also work all areas of the foot with gentle pressure, because, according to reflexology theories, this allows the nerve pathways and congestion to release and promotes the relaxation response for the entire body.
What reflexology feels like?
Experiences with reflexology sessions vary from a general feeling of relaxation, to a sense of "lightness" or tingling in the body, as well as feelings of warmth, a sense of "opening," or "energy moving" from the practitioner's pressure to the specific body area or organ. There is often a physical perception of energy flowing through every organ, valve, gland, or muscle, as well as a sense of communication between each body system.
A session lasts approximately around one hour.
Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension.
Anyone with celles and organs can benefit from reflexology, all ages included. The only total contra-indicators would be people who have recently suffered Deep Vein Trombosis, foot surgery, and having contagious skin disease.
Foot Reflexology and allopathic medicine are not opposed to each other. Neither start or discontinue medicines unless instructed to do so by your physician.
The most prominent effect of Reflex Zone Therapy is a restoration of equilibrium inside the body. There is No reason to believe that Reflexology will prove detrimental to the health of a baby, a pregnant women or a diabetic. Reflexology: a) assists in normalizing or stimulating the growth of a child, b) prevents or diminishes common problems of pregnancy (like nausea, vomiting, swelling on feet, high blood pressure, disorders of mood etc.) and makes delivery easier and c) helps a diabetic to keep blood sugar level under complete control.
Reflexology should never hurt or be ticklish and pressure can be increased or decreased according to your needs. In fact, most people describe the sensation as very relaxing and when they leave they feel like they are walking on air.
No, it will not make any condition more acute. Reflexology helps to normalize body functions. A Reflexology session relaxes the stress that can affect your health. It is a safe effective way to Better Health.
