Many bones makes up our fabulous foot anatomy, and it’s not hard to imagine some of the ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, and nerve vessels tangling themselves up, and becoming impinched when carrying around the weight of the whole body!
If sensitivity or tenderness is experienced when an area under the foot is stimulated, it usually indicates bodily weaknesses or imbalances within the corresponding organ.
Foot reflexology can help clear blocked matter & energy in the body. It works by the stimulation of distal points on nerve, blood and energetic channels – by touch. (some deep – and some more light | subtle). Science is just now starting to be able to partially “see | measure” these long known about transfers via various modern testing tools.
Through moving the flow of blood, nutrients and nerve impulses, reflexology ultimately improves overall health and balance.
It is important to be well hydrated to optimize your reflexology appointment! In my treatments I generally use generous amounts of dōTERRA pure & potent essential oils to add a whole new dimension to the effectiveness, by cleansing cellular receptor sites, acting in anti inflammatory and many other ways on the tissues of the foot, and affecting overall immune functions, stress levels, digestive & hormonal processes in a positive manner!
- A more correct and efficient gate, supporting the joints above… (knee/hips/spine)
- Cleanses the body of toxins by stimulating the digestive and cleansing organs
- Boosts the immune system by betterment of lymphatic circulation
- Increased general blood circulation
- Promote overall tissue healing by guiding the nerve-system into parasympathetic limbic response (rest & digest)
Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress and anxiety, while enhancing relaxation and sleep. Given that reflexology is also low risk, it can be a great option if you’re seeking relaxation and stress relief!
