Reflexology 101

reflexology

Reflexology is a form of therapy based on the belief that there are parts of the feet, hand, and ears that stimulate the function of different parts of the body, including the glands and organs. It is most often used as a preventive therapy that aims to calm the nervous system, lower stress, improve circulation, and create the optimum internal environment for balanced energy, rest, and recovery. The goal is that the body can call on it's own natural ability to heal itself because it is in a relaxed and balanced state. 

This alternative method has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its ability to alleviate pain. According to The American Academy of Reflexology, people who have undergone reflexology sessions report health benefits. Some of the advantages include: detoxification, improved circulation, reduced stress, and alleviation of allergy symptoms.

Hands, ears, and feet can all be manipulated to improve health and wellness. The feet receive the most attention in reflexology for good reason. The feet are important because of their rich supply  of superficial nerve endings (7,000 in each foot). Reflexologists focus on working every surface of the foot to decrease muscle tension and pain, increase local circulation, loosen the foot so that it is more flexible and mobile, and stimulate the flow of energy throughout the body.

The system of the Five Elements began as a healing practice that grew out of a 5,000-year-old Asian medical system. Chinese physicians believed that the universe is composed of forces that include water, wood, fire, earth, and metal—the five elements. They proposed that human behavior, emotions, and health are also influenced by these elements and that people are led by one or two elements. If we understand these elements, we can use them to stay in balance physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
