Targeted treatment of sensitive areas (zones) on the feet and the corresponding reflex point for the purpose of relieving symptoms is called reflexology. Reflexology works in three ways: relaxes, stimulates circulation and promotes energy balance within the body.
Balance is essential for a healthy body, mind and spirit. Once in the body, there are dysfunctions, it is the entire organism is out of its equilibrium. Reflexology treatment balances every gland, organ, muscle, tissue and cell in the body, increasing the body’s systems in a fully functional normal state. In reflexology treatments reflexes made through specific points and zones, sending impulses in the diseased part of the body.
Good reflexology monitors reactions of your body and helps you get results very quickly. It can also contribute to better diagnose the disease. It is desirable in the beginning not to interrupt treatments that for a few moments can be painful, because it is a process of healing. After establishing the flow of energy, that pain disappears.
Technique of reflexology is mainly driven by intuition of therapists. Treatment should not be painful, but if there is certain pain, it can be considered as a good indicator of latent problems and used for further treatment. The therapist should pay particular attention to the appearance of a dull or sharp pain. If the pain is localized, it is sharp and piercing, and if it is dull and deep, a reflection of an organ or some other distant points. Reduced intensity of treatment reflex points causes analgesic or pain relief, while strong intensity carried stimulation to remote areas. Reflex therapy treatment is repeated every day for 10 to 20 days. It is effective for all age groups.
Reflexology has proven to be productive in treatments of asthma, bronchitis, colds, cough, sinusitis, hypertension, diabetes, circulatory disorders, headache, fatigue, psychosomatic complaints, inflammation of the colon, disorders of the digestive tract, gastritis, ulcer (ulcer) in the stomach, problems of the menstrual cycle, menopause, back problems, lumbago, neuralgia and dermatological problems .
However, there are certain precautions and reflexology should not be used during internal injuries, high temperature, internal and external wounds, in pregnant women and people who have a pacemakers.
Nerve endings that are placed on the fingertips on the hands and feet transmit information along the spinal cord to the brain and then to the individual parts of the body. Schedule areas on the feet reflect the organization of the body to the extent that the organs of the right side of the body represented in the right foot, and the left bodies side organs are on the left.
Nowadays feet are neglected and even up to 90 percent of people have some kind of foot deformities. Research has proven that over time at the nerve endings in the foot accumulate calcium salts and crystals of uric acid that prevents normal stimulation of glands and organs. But with the technique of reflexology this can be removed.
Man is, in fact, lost direct contact with the environment and nature when, walking barefoot, directly stimulates the reflex points.
