Reflexology is a healing practice aimed at working the 7,200 nerve endings found within the feet. These nerve endings connect to nerve pathways that lead to each and every organ, gland, and part of the body. Through the use of a unique thumb and finger walking technique on each foot, reflexology brings the body into homeostasis (balancing of the endocrine glands) and is capable of improving the functioning of all body systems, while leaving you with a feeling of balance and harmony.
Accumulation of stress and tension can occur within the foot, and the reflexology session helps to release built up tension. Reflexology can also serve to jump start the systems of the body into optimal health, by sending messages through the nerve endings to activate the systems. While reflexology will not diagnose or treat a particular disease, it will work to activate/enhance all of the systems and so help the body move toward optimal well being.
My recommendation is that you also engage in other healing modalities for self care for a multidimensional approach to achieve total health.
It is all about regainingbalance in life.
How Andrew came to reflexology....
When I first began my spiritual journey, some 30 years ago, my yoga teacher suggested I visit a reflexologist for self-care. I went every few months and she helped me with various things-- including curing parasites I had gotten from India! I loved the experience, but when I moved to Iowa City I never was able to locate a Reflexologist.
Fast forward to this last holiday season, my wife got me a gift card to a Reflexologist in Cedar Rapids, and it was like coming home. I left my appointment thinking that this was my next step in life. From there I found a 300 hour program in Illinois called Healthy Soles School of Reflexology and enrolled.
I feel grateful to have added another dimension to my life's purpose.
I run a preschool in the morning with children, where I tap into my Inner Child/Teacher archetypes. Reflexology is my afternoon activity, where I get to interact with adults and get to dwell in quiet, healing energy. It feels like a great balance.
