Reflexology

Reflexology in Buckinghamshire

Reflexology is a holistic healing technique – the term ‘holistic’ derived from the Greek word holos, which means ‘whole’ – and as such aims to treat the individual as an entity, incorporating body, mind, and spirit. Reflexologists do not isolate a disease and treat it symptomatically, nor do they work specifically on a problem organ or system, but on the whole person with the object of inducing a state of balance and harmony.

It is a specific pressure technique that works on precise reflex points on the feet, based on the premise that reflex areas on the feet correspond with all body parts. Because the feet represent a microcosm of the body, all organs, glands, and other body parts are laid out in a similar arrangement on the feet.

Firm pressure is applied to the relevant reflex area using both specific thumb and finger techniques. This causes physiological changes to take place in the body since the body’s own healing potential is stimulated. Thus, the feet can play a major role in attaining and maintaining better health.

In the field of complementary medicine, there is no such thing as an instant cure.- it is a healing process. Most dis-eases have taken time to manifest and will therefore take time to eradicate. It usually takes an enormous amount of abuse before manifesting signs of dis-ease and will respond extremely well if treated kindly.

Reflexology also works on reducing stress. Because reflexology encourages the body to relax, other functions are also affected. When tension is relaxed, the muscles cease to contract. Blood vessels are too relaxed, allowing circulation to flow freely, in turn conducting the necessary oxygen and nutrients to all the body tissues and organs. This in turn helps cleanse the body of toxins and impurities.

The human body is like a machine. Thousands of parts work together to keep the body functioning at optimum levels. The analogy of a car is often used to describe the workings of the body.

To get maximum response from your car you have to keep it in good working order. If one part isn’t working correctly, the whole car suffers and has to go to the garage for a tuneup. Or you trade it in for a new one. Reflexology can be considered the equivalent of a tuneup – a body tuneup. Since you can’t trade your body in for a new one, it makes sense to treat the body you have with care.
