Reflexology

There is a healing energy “life force” which circulates throughout the body along energy pathways “meridians”. This vital energy was mapped out centuries ago by various cultures all over the world.

Benefits Using Reflexology can: Relieve Stress, Neck/Back pain, Hormone Imbalances, Gout, Symptoms of M.S.,  Arthritis, Headaches / Migraines,  Anxiety/Panic Attacks,  Fluid Retention,  Sore feet/legs, Joint problems,  Digestive Disorders,  Sleeping difficulties,  Vision/Hearing difficulties.

Although this vital energy can be tapped into at more than 800 points on the body, the reflex points located in the hands and feet bring natural and fast relief to all body systems.


With regular practice, the practitioner can detect malfunction in the glands and organs. When  correct stimulation is applied to these reflexes in the hands, body or feet, a surge of energy is released along the energy lines removing blockages, increasing circulation and the relaxation effect provides prompt relief of the condition.

No special equipment and no drugs are used, just the body’s wisdom and a knowledge of the reflex points.


Reflexology is also used as a preventative maintenance for the body/mind connection as an overall feeling of peace and well being is experienced, reducing stress and anxiety.

 

History.
These energy pathways were mapped out centuries ago and were documented on pictographs on the wall of the tomb of Ankhmahor in Egypt dating back to 2500BC. These wall drawings display physicians giving reflexology treatments to the Royal family.

Ankhmahors tomb had 6 wall carvings which include child birth, circumcision, dentistry, embalming, pharmacology and reflexology

Mas Watanabe has practiced nerve therapy or Soku Shinjusu, literally means “observation of feet and foot nerves” . He learned this relative of reflexology as a student in Japan. He says the history of reflexology started in India, was brought to China by Buddhist monks and then came to Japan. He studied it over 70 years ago in a Buddhist monastery. It is recognized that reflexology was practiced in India over 5000 years ago.
Modern European History is marked by the discovery of neurology, dealing with the functioning of the brain and nervous system. John Huglings Jackson, Sir Henry Head and Sir Charles Herrington published theories periodically in “The Brain” a Journal of Neurology, regarding reflex action research on the Brain and Central Nervous System. In 1878 “Brain” published an article by Dr. T. Lauter Brunton titled: Reflex Action, as a Cause of Disease and Means of Cure.


Sir Henry Head proved the neurological relationship that exists between the skin and the internal organs. He writes: “The bladder can be exited to action by stimulation of the sole of the foot”.   Sir James MacKenzie wrote “Firm deep pressure relieves, rather than aggravates his patients pain”.

 

Studies conducted by DR. William Fitzgerald (1872-1942) where he verified the division of the body into 10 longitudinal zones. At the same time in Japan Dr Kurakichi Hirata dived the body into horizontal zones. Fitzgerald found that stimulation of the skin caused a reflex action to occur, by working anywhere on a zone, everything in the zone was affected.

 

During the 1930’s Eunice Ingham worked with Dr. Riley in Florida as his therapist and she was a pioneer to help people help themselves with reflexology. She worked with doctors to prove to them that reflexology was a useful diagnostic tool. She separated work on the reflexes of the feet  from zone therapy, originally terming it compression massage or stimulation, then finally settled with the word “reflexology” as we know it today. In 1938 she wrote a book called “Stories the Feet Can Tell” and continued to write 3 more books.
Eunice travelled across America for over 30 years to teach her method through seminars, books and charts to thousands of people both in and out of the medical field. She devoted 40 years of her life to the study of Reflexology. Her legacy continues today.
