Foot reflexology is a form of Ancient Chinese medicine that can be traced to 3000 BC. While there are some forms of reflexology that target the hands, ears and other parts of the body, foot reflexology does as the name suggests—it focuses on the feet. Reflexology divides the body into ten zones, and each corresponds to the reflex areas on your feet. Stimulating these zones helps realign your Qi and spreads it throughout your body.
Traditional reflexology requires training from a master and takes many years to master the art. The actual area being “de-crystalised” or “unblocked” is not the specific organ but rather the meridian that exists in that area.
Reflexology is an ancient method of stimulating the pressure points on the feet to encourage balance and harmony in the body, which enables it to heal itself.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy that aims to treat the person as a whole by treating the cause of the problem. By applying specific massage techniques to congested pressure points or reflexes in the feet, it creates an electro-chemical reaction or impulse which travels through meridians to the brain and back to the connecting organ. This unblocks the meridian (your energy line) and creates balance.
