I LOVE REFLEXOLOGY ESPECIALLY FOOT RUBS. ONE EVENING I HAD THE WORST HEADACHE THAT I WAS TOSSING AND TURNING IN MY BED. I ASKED MY HUSBAND TO RUB MY FEET AND WITHIN MINUTES THE HEADACHE STOPPED. I HAD BEEN STRUGGLING WITH A HEADACHE FOR MOST OF THE DAY.
The most common form is foot reflexology. Practitioners believe the foot to be divided into a number of reflex zones corresponding to all parts of the body, and that applying pressure to tight or "gritty" areas of a person's foot will stimulate the corresponding body part and cause it to begin healing itself.
In reflexology, it is believed that there is a "vital energy" that is circulating between organs of the human body, that penetrates into every living cell. Whenever this energy is blocked, the zone of blockage will be affected, and the reflex zones can indicate the blockage of energy in different organs.
For the most of the part, the sensation is pleasant and soothing. Reflexology can help relax the client and is believed to stimulate the body's own healing mechanisms.
