The Basics of Foot Reflexology
Foot reflexology is a simple, non-invasive method to help balance the body. It has been described as a natural therapy that involves the application of a specific type of pressure on particular areas of the feet. Reflexology is the physical act of applying pressure to the feet and hand with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
This therapy has been around for thousands of years in Egypt, China and elsewhere, where reflexology has long been practiced. More recently, early in the 20th century, American physician William Fitzgerald mapped out 10 zones of the body and keyed each zone to a region of the foot. The later finding of so-called reflex points led to the use of the term reflexology to describe the manipulations designed to bring relief.
The Benefits of Foot Reflexology
Known benefits of foot reflexology include relaxation and relief of stress; promotion of restful sleep, assistance with elimination or reduction of digestive problems; overall wellness and improved mental health; and pain management for chronic or acute pain. Less obvious benefits resulting from foot reflexology include reduction of reliance on prescription and over-the-counter drug remedies, savings on overall health care expenses and greater enjoyment in life by alleviating some of life's common stressors noted above. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body's equilibrium.
Some of the benefits those undergoing reflexology have experienced include:
Relaxation and stress relief
Rejuvenation of tired feet
Stimulate nerve function
Increase energy levels
RLD (Reflex Lymph Drainage)
RLD is a form of reflex therapy to assist in the drainage of the lymphatic system via the feet and hands. Focusing on these pressure points assists in opening blockages in the lymphatic system. This is a subtle energy movement and can be helpful in detoxification of the body.
