Reflexology - Foot Massage

Reflexology - good health through foot massage

Reflexology is an ancient therapy known to promote the body's own healing powers. It is suitable for any age groups, from babies to seniors. Reflexology is more than a foot massage, it's a natural healing therapy which is highly effective in dealing with many complaints. Reflexology promotes relaxation and well being. 

You might use a home massager machine such as a Homedics foot massager to relax after a long day at work, but this massage only provides temporary relief. Foot reflexology treatment aims at providing longer term wellness by removing the cause of the ailment. 

Foot reflexology is based on the principle that the foot is like a chart of the body: divided into ten reflex zones, it is a mirror image of the body. Each reflex zone corresponds to a part of the body. Specific manipulation and pressure of reflex points reduces and eliminates blockages in the corresponding glands or organs, and therefore restores a healthy balance.

Thanks to reflexology, you have at your feet a natural healing therapy to get you back on your feet on the road to good health. 

Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on the feet. 
What will I feel?
If only a gentle touch filled with love and care can make you feel relaxed, then imagine the ultimate effect that you will get from a professional massage. Most people find reflexology for the most part to be very relaxing. Reflexology shouldn't be painful. 
If you feel discomfort, be sure to tell the reflexologist. He or she should work within your comfort zone.
Some areas may be tender or sore, and the reflexologist may spend extra time on these points. The soreness should decrease with pressure.

The Practice of Foot Reflexology Massage
The genuine reflexology is the application of pressure onto particular areas of the soles of the feet. A reflex action in another part of the body is stimulated by the manipulation of each specific area. Unlike other massages that use thumbs, palms, hands, elbow, knee and foot, foot reflexology massage uses hands, fingers and a wood stick with cream and oil. 
According to Chinese medicine, the sensory nerves of the internal organs that spread throughout the body are mainly gathered around the soles of the feet.
Therefore, the massage is effective in stimulating the functions of the internal organs. Another advantage of this therapy is that there is no risk. Expert masseurs will deal with the critical points on the feet with utmost care. The pain felt there will disappear when the masseur finishes the process.
