Our contemporary Reflexology is a scientific healing art where, as the name indicates, specific reflex points on feet, hands, face or ears are compressed. These reflex points correlate to certain body areas or organs in the body associated to these reflex points. When a specific reflex point on the feet, the hands, the face or the ears gets pressed, a sensory body messenger sends the message to the corresponding body part or organ. The stimulated body part reacts, tension gets released, toxins get removed, cell nourishment gets increased: the body starts healing! A reflexology treatment can be likened to a whole body remedial massage treatment as our feet are ‘a mirror of our body and its organs’ as Eunice Ingham (1879 – 1974), developer of the science of contemporary Reflexology states. Reflexology works on the body on multiple levels. Healing touch releases enkephalins and endorphins which promote feelings of well-being, strengthen the immune and hormone systems of the body. By applying pressure on reflex points, stimuli are received by nerve receptors of our nervous system. Stimuli to the body are processed by pathways to the Central Nervous System and will result in an appropriate corrective re-action via pathways back to our body parts and body organs. Reflexology is revitalising for the body, helps improve circulation, waste elimination and detoxification and stimulates the body’s own defense mechanisms.
