Hands, feet and Reflexology: the gateways to total-body health

Reflexology on hands and feetOur hands and feet are incredibly complex nerve zones that connect throughout our bodies.  There are 7,200 nerve endings in your feet, and a staggering 1,300 nerve endings per square inch in your hands.

Reflexology is one of the only healing disciplines to focus entirely on the ability of the hands and feet to control and regulate physical processes throughout the body.  By placing pressure on various areas of the hands and feet, the reflexologist sends healing signals to various parts of the body.

Many theories exist to explain how reflexology produces results.  According to some practitioners, the thousands of nerve endings in the hands and feet can be manipulated through touch and massage to trigger healthy processes in corresponding areas of the body.  For instance, the tips of the toes correspond to the brain, the balls of the feet correspond to the lungs and the heels correspond to the pelvis and sciatic nerve.  By using precise touch, unaided by creams or lotions, the reflexologist can address specific issues in the body.  Reflexology has also been used to address psychological issues, such as depression and anxiety.

Reflexology has been practiced around the world for thousands of years.  It is believed that the earliest forms of the practice originated in China 5000 years ago and spread to India and Japan. The Cherokee tribes of North America also developed a form of reflexology.   In its original form, reflexology was based on the manipulation of life energy (Qi).  By applying pressure to the feet and hands, energy was directed through pathways in the body to stimulate health and wellbeing.

This treatment has shown great success in treating circulation and lymphatic conditions, and also improves overall health by promoting relaxation, detoxification and immune strengthening.  Other conditions that respond well to reflexology include: migraines, infertility, back pain, hormonal imbalances and digestive disorders.
