Reflexology  and Zone Therapy

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is the practice of working reflexes in the feet, hands or ear to treat the corresponding parts of the body. It is a method of activating the healing powers of the body.

It causes responses (relaxation) in corresponding parts of the body which is the first step to normalization. The body returns to a state of equilibrium called homeostasis where easy circulation of blood flow takes place, supplying nutrients and oxygen to the cells.

What are the effects?

It reduces stress, improves blood circulation, cleanses the toxins from the body, revitalizes energy and balances the whole system.

How to locate the reflex points?

Imagine the foot or hand as three dimensional representation of the three dimensional body to fix the internal organs in position on both the hands and feet.

What causes imbalance?

Zonal imbalance is caused by internal blockages like calcification or pooling of lymph fluid or by external blockages like corns and calluses.

How to apply pressure on the reflex points?

Thumb walking or finger walking technique in which the thumb is bent at the first joint and pressure is applied all over the feet or hands. Remember, pleasurable pain is the goal.

Can it be done by oneself?

It can be done by oneself and is more effective when the reflex organ is imagined at the time of applying pressure and coordinated with breathing by closing the eyes.

What is the duration for activating the points?

For curative purpose apply rhythmic on and off pressure fourteen times and for preventive purpose apply rhythmic pressure seven times.

What is Zone Therapy?

Zone therapy is the basis of hand and foot reflexology. Working on the entire foot or hand affects the whole body. In this method the body is divided into lateral zones in addition to longitudinal zones. The main purpose is to fix the image of the body onto the foot or hand in proper perspective and location.
