 Reflexology

The foot reflexology method described is a further development of reflex-zone foot massage using some sport massage and taking all the reflex zones of the human body into account.

Important: Alcohol should be avoided during the entire treatment phase, thus multiplying the effectiveness of the method. Alcohol paralyzes the central nervous system and definitely hinders the healing process.  Unless your doctor advises otherwise, you should eat normally.    Dieting or fasting is inappropriate because the body requires well balanced, nutritional meals during the treatment period.

 Reflexology is based upon an ancient Chinese therapy involving manipulation of specific reflex areas in the foot, hands, and ears that correspond to other parts of the body. Sometimes referred to as zone therapy, this bodywork involves application of pressure to these reflex zones to stimulate body organs and relieve areas of congestion.  Similar to Acupressure principles.

Reflexology works with the body's energy flow to stimulate self-healing and maintain balance in physical function. Developed in the United States in early 1900's, this technique is used today to reduce pain, increase relaxation and stimulate circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids.  It is especially useful in stress-related illness and emotional disorders.

Reflexology is also convenient in cases where an area of the body is traumatized or diseased to the extent that direct manipulation is not appropriate.

Specific reflex points are worked on the hands, feet or face to promote deep relaxation, physical vitality and efficient functioning of all body systems.  Reflexology can relieve stress and tension within the body.   It improves circulation and lymphatic flow, unblocks nerve impulse pathways and enhances resistance to disease.
