Reflexotherapy

WHAT IS REFLEXOTHERAPY?

 

Reflexology is a safe and natural method which helps the body to rid itself of toxins and promote healing, as well as effectively releasing muscular tension. It is a complementary therapy based on the same principles as Chinese acupuncture. Pressure-point massage of the feet was used in China over 5.000 years ago, as well as by the Ancient Egyptians, Hopi tribes of North America and 16th century European medical practitioners. Like many such therapies it is holistic as it treats the body as a whole.

 

This natural, drug-free approach to healing is based on the theory that every organ, area and system of the body is mirrored by a reflex point in the feet. These reflexes connect to distinct areas of the body via nerve pathways and electromagnetic channels of energy called meridians. By massaging these points in the feet the reflexologist can observe and facilitate a clearing of any blockages in the corresponding areas of the body.

In Greek the word THERAPY means call, request for help from the earth. And the earth really offers this help through everything it has: mineral and thermal waters, mud, clay, precious stones, homeopathic remedies and even the stones we step on and which massage the reflexogenous areas in the soles. I am positive that it was here where reflexotherapy comes from; from the lesson nature gave to man, making him notice that the elements of nature have a precise destination and that we must only use all the gifts they give us. A great spiritual man told some time ago that being moral means using every thing in conformity with the destination the Creator gave it. Then you are moral and free. Or, besides many other things that reflexotherapy brings, it teaches man, even from the antiquity, to be moral and free, showing him how to use each element in conformity with its purpose.

 

What are the benefits it offers?

 

Reflexology is deeply relaxing and, as about 75% of disease is stress related, it provides a major contribution in maintaining good health. It balances the circulatory, excretory, digestive, endocrine, nervous and immune systems, making the body less prone to infection.

It helps the body to rid itself of toxins and promote healing, as well as effectively releasing muscular tension. Reflexology works to encourage the body to restore itself, bringing relief from a wide range of chronic and acute conditions. Its gentle nature makes it particularly valuable in aiding recovery after illness, operations and prolonged periods of stress, as well as helping those experiencing fertitlity problems. It is suitable for any age, with children reacting particularly quickly to treatment.
