Reflexology – A Holistic Therapy to Balance Body Systems and for Improved Health
Reflexology is a kind of massage therapy that requires using hand, thumb and finger techniques to apply pressure and stimulate some specific areas of the feet, hands and ears to alleviate stress, reduce pain, and to benefit a person’s health. These are also called the reflex areas that are correspondent to or are connected energetically to different body parts through the energy channels. Though its history roots to ancient China and Egypt but in the year 1915, William H. Fitzgerald, an ENT doctor introduced the “zone therapy” concept which was further developed by Eunice Ingram, an American physiotherapist in 1930’s as modern reflexology.
How does the reflexology therapy work?
In reflexology, the therapists give pressure on the specific reflex areas on the feet and hands that are connected energetically to particular organs, glands, and parts of the body. Here, the certified reflexologist or therapist applies pressure to the specific reflex points to remove energy blockages and to secure the health and wellbeing of that body part.
The reflexology massage, if done professionally, is effective in balancing the nervous system and helps in releasing endorphins to reduce pain, anxiety, and stress issues. A professional reflexologist uses a compression technique wherein he uses the thumb and forefinger to connect reflex areas to the energy zones in the body. This massage is helpful in balancing the body and activates its natural capability to heal itself.
