What is reflexology?

An application of special finger techniques applied to the pressure points of the feet or hands to effect corresponding parts of the body.

Reflexologists view the feet and hands as a mirror image of the body. By applying technique a reflexologist can break up patterns of stress in other parts of the body. Helping to bring
Mind and Body into balance.

How does reflexology work?

Pressure applied to the feet generates a signal through the peripheral nervous system. From there it enters the central
nervous system where it is processed in various parts of the brain. It is then relayed to the internal organs to allocate the necessary adjustments in fuel and oxygen. Finally a response is fashioned that is sent onto the motor
system.

This message is fed forward to adjust the body’s tone or overall tension level. If applied properly the tone will reset itself to a lower operating tempo. A lower operating tempo means a lessening of stress and less wear and tear on the body’s systems.

What are the benefits of reflexology?
In general terms the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress. 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. It helps with the balancing of energy
and emotions, providing pain relief, also to the muscles as it relieves tension. Detoxifying the body thus preventing further problems occuring.

As reflexology relaxes the whole body, this allows the blood supply to flow more efficiently, increasing the circulation. The nerve endings are stimulated to all parts of the body,
opening of the neural flow enabling the organs and systems of the body to work more effectively. Helping to improve state of stress, depression, anger, shock, disappointment, PMT,
anxiety, bereavement and many physical ailments.

Aftercare advice
Drink plenty of water as this helps to flush toxins out of the body’s system, helped along by the treatment.
Relaxation helps the flow of reflexology to be more effective. Try to abstain from alcohol and reduce the intake of
tea and coffee. Eat a light meal after as a heavy meal can interfere with the treatment and cause indigestio n.
Reflexology will be working through your body over the next 24 hours, so take caution during this time to the
advice given as it could hinder help of the treatment otherwise.

You should feel relaxation at the end of a session. How long that relaxation lasts is a good indicator of the
effectiveness of the session. Make note of this and tell your reflexologist your response to the session. This can be
helpful information.

Finally enjoy the session. Be careful that talking doesn’t interfere with the relaxation effect. Discussing world politics is probably something best left to another time.

History of Reflexology
Evidence of this treatment dates back as far as 2500 BC, artists used drawings and paintings to depict such
workings in a tomb in Egypt. Ancient Egypt is thought to be the earliest findings of evidence that the existence
of reflexology was being practised in these times.
It was also practised in ancient India and Buddhist monks who travelled to China delivered the techniques, later
travelling to Japan.

It was used by Dr. William Fitzgerald as late as the 20th century in the United States who also practised medicine in
Boston, London and Vienna.
