What is Reflexology?
I describe Reflexology as “Internal Massage for the Body”. Reflexology is the science based on the principle that there are reflexes on the feet, hands and ears that corresponds to the entire body including the glands and organs. We can say we have a mini-body on our body which when stimulated kicks in our self-healing ability.
Therefore, Reflexology is a complementary therapy that helps tap into the natural tendency of the body to reach a state of homeostasis or normalcy. It is suitable for all age groups with very limited contraindications.
Reflexology is non-invasive and de-stressing, stress being one of the main causes of disease. With 72,000 nerve endings on our feet, stimulating the reflex areas improves blood and nerve supply to the corresponding part of the body that is under stress.
The specialized techniques used in Reflexology help restore the flow of Qi or life force energy throughout the body and that is what differentiates it from a regular foot massage.
Reflexology in its unique way helps alleviate various imbalances in the body and mind and manage/heal chronic issues such as but not limited to:
- Muscular tension in the neck
- Shoulder, Back, Sciatica
- Headaches, Sinus congestion
- Digestive complaints
- Compromised immunity
- Reduced blood and lymph circulation
- Hormonal imbalance
What is the difference between Foot and Hand Reflexology?
Both work on the same principle. Every reflex point on the feet is also represented on the hands however the wider canvas of the feet help to identify and isolate the reflex points with greater ease. Having said that, the hands offer much greater accessibility for self-help.
What I bring to the therapy!
I bring my passion and my many years of experience in using Reflexology as a self-healing tool. I use a combination of physical touch and Reiki influenced intuition to identify and address imbalances in every treatment. This combination makes the treatment a more holistic one.
What does the receiver bring to the therapy?
Some imbalances require repetitive treatment and I like to empower the receiver with the knowledge to carry out simple self-help reflexology for continuity in-between sessions. The receiver comes with the objectivity to help themselves with the knowledge I impart.
