FOOT REFLEXOLOGY..... DOES IT REALLY WORK?

     Just recently one of my best friends told me that she had the most excruciating headache, a while back, and nothing absolutely nothing, she tried was relieving the pain.

     She remembered one of my very short posts I wrote about reflexology and thought she would give it a try and boy was she glad she did, because it worked and helped relieve her relentless pounding headache.

     Her story made me think it was time for me to post another blog on reflexology and this time with "a lot" more information, so you can have a quick go-to-guide for an ache that just might be relentless.

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADIEU....

     Let's take a look at the wonderful world of Reflexology.   

     HOW IT ALL BEGAN: Ivan Pavlov, a Russian physician was actually the first to create "reflex therapy" in the early 1900's. He believed that by stimulating certain points on the bottom of the feet encouraged a beneficial effect on other parts of the body, improving overall health.

     By 1917, Vladimir Berklerev (British Physician) coined the work "reflexology" and began using this method at his medical office. Soon the practice of foot reflexology made its way to America where Eunice Ingham, a physiotherapist traveled around the country teaching nurses, physicians, physical therapist and medical technicians the art of this practice. Her enthusiasm for the subject started an amazing community of reflexology users, in all areas of health care.

     In 1954, Eunice published the very first book about the workings of reflexology and by 1970 the seed was planted and many Americans were finding relief from this wonderful practice.

     Today, reflexology is being used at spas, doctor's offices and hospitals in conjunction with conventional medical care.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS....

     SIMPLY PUT: As pressure is applied to certain areas of the feet, messages are sent to the bodies central nervous system to relax and OPEN up blocked and congested pathways corresponding to other parts of the body. Thereby, allowing the body to begin healing itself.

THE BENEFITS....

It can help reduce pain from headaches to sprains to arthritis.

It relaxes the nervous system and muscles.

It stimulates the lymphatic system.

Boosts circulation.

Relieves backaches.

Boosts metabolism.

Relieves sleep disorders.

HOW TO PRACTICE....

     Consistency is the key. Practice once a day (5 minutes minimum) for two weeks at a time, then take a few days off and start in again working on the sensitive area of pain, which is the blocked area.

     With light pressure, press with your thumb on the tender area holding for 10 seconds. Repeat 1 to 2 more times.

PRETTY SIMPLE, RIGHT?

Then it's time to check out....

    YOUR FABULOUS FEET!

 

SHORT ON TIME?

Keep a reflexology foot roller under your desk. Rolling your foot on the roller while working at your desk can help unblock your pathways, too.

 THAT'S IT!....

FUN AND EASY! AND WITH BENEFITS!

So when you're having a headache, muscle pain or even indigestion, take a moment and give reflexology a try.

YOU JUST MAY BE SURPRISED TO FIND OUT IT REALLY DOES WORK!
