Reflexology is a completely safe form of therapy, as well as being a very relaxing and pleasant experience.
The purpose of the therapy is to normalize the body’s functions, to help break down tension, and to improve nerve function and blood supply throughout the whole body. Simple pressure is applied though the fingers to the minute reflex points in and around the feet and hands. This in turn, has a stimulating effect on specific parts of the body.
Reflexology aims to correct the three negative factors — congestion, inflammation and tension.
- Congested conditions are responsible for bringing about growths;
- inflammatory conditions are those such as colitis, bronchitis, or sinusitis;
- and tension is responsible for lowering the efficiency of the immune system.
The aim of reflexology is to improve and strengthen the weak areas of the body that are causing the condition or symptoms.
In MS patients, bladder and bowel improvement have been felt by many. This is achieved by targeting the problem areas throughout the reflex points found on or around the feet and hands.
