The feet are thought to represent a microcosm of the body with all of the body parts and organs being represented in a similar arrangement with the reflexes on the feet as they are located anatomically in the body. Claire will map the feet and toes, and apply pressure by using special thumb and finger techniques to the reflexes on the feet. This in turn will trigger physiological reactions in the corresponding organs and parts of the body by releasing the “chi” energy, or vital energy, and removing any blockages that may have been caused by disease.

Top reasons to go for Reflexology:

  1. It is an antidote to stress. A stress reaction is a primitive response to a threatening or dangerous situation. When a person experiences stress, certain hormonal and chemical defence mechanisms occur in the body. If a person experiences prolonged stress, this will eventually result in the depletion of essential vitamins and minerals from the system and exhaustion sets in. Chronic stress and tension can tighten up the cardiovascular system and restrict blood flow. 1 This results in a sluggish circulation and high or low blood pressure. Reflexology encourages oxygen and blood to move through the body supplying oxygen and nutrients. In addition, the lymphatic system, which deals with the absorption of fats, the distribution of excess fluids and elimination of harmful substances, is also encouraged to work more efficiently.

  2. Facilitates a more optimal function of the neural pathways. When neural pathways are impaired, the body’s nerve function is hindered and this impacts negatively on a person’s reactions and cognitive processes. By revitalising the energy flow throughout the body the nerve function is “jump-started” and neural messages are delivered more rapidly and efficiently to all parts of the body, allowing a more optimal level of functioning.

  3. Encourages the endocrine system to function effectively. A further effect of the revitalisation of the energy flow throughout the body by the stimulation of reflex points is that the endocrine system, an intricate network of glands, which secrete hormones, will improve in functionality. These glands influence all facets of growth, development and sexual function. 2 They also exert a powerful influence on thoughts, emotions and personality. The malfunction of any of the seven principle endocrine glands can result in the disruption of hormone secretion and imbalances in the body.

  4. Eases pain and help the body to relax activating the parasympathetic system and one’s ability to rest and digest. Stimulation of the reflexes encourages the brain to release pain-killing endorphins and help the body to relax.

  5. Reflexology breaks down crystal deposits and helps to remove toxins. An excess of acidity in the bloodstream may result in the settling of grainy deposits in the nerve endings of a body organ. These are considered to be calcium deposits, which develop into acid crystals and can impede normal blood circulation. Feet are at the end point of circulation in the body and are often the prime targets for these crystal deposits. They settle beneath the skin surface, cause congestion, impede circulation and cause toxins to stagnate in the feet. Reflexology stimulation results in the breakdown of the crystals and the removal of toxins through improved circulation. This also eases pain and swelling in the feet and legs.
