Foot Reflexology

The feet, hands and ears mirror the body’s organs and systems. Within in the feet there are 7000 nerves, 26 bones, and 120 ligaments. Applying pressure stimulates the 7000 nerves, increases circulation, moves stagnation within the organs and systems. Reflexology nourishes the ligaments and keeps the feet and toes limber and flexible so they can keep us standing with ease. Pain or discomfort in the feet or body is a sign of stagnation/congestion. When pressure is applied to your feet and there is pain or it is uncomfortable there is stagnation. Applying pressure allows the congestion to be cleared. Understanding where there is stagnation brings awareness, so you can focus on the areas of your health through nutrition, herbal remedies and finding tools to balance stress from life.

How Reflexology Works

  • Reflexology eases stress by sending messages to the brain where they are processed and then are sent back to regions of the body. While messages are being sent to the brain, they are also being sent to the motor system, causing it to modify its levels of tension. If this is triggered appropriately, then a decrease in stress results as well as an increase of circulation.
  • Signals from the brain also carry with them oxygen and food which go to needy body parts. When an individual has a low level of stress and good circulation, the body is better able to transport nutrients and oxygen.
  • A decrease in stress makes a person’s circulation increase endorphins within the body, which enables the endorphins to go more quickly to where they are needed. The endorphins are specifically shunted through the body because of the arousal caused at the points of pressure on the feet; this leads to a decrease in stress.
  • Better circulation is the result of lower stress levels for all system within the body. Because the lymphatic system and digestive system are affected by an increase in circulation, an improvement in eliminating toxins from the body is witnessed.
