Reflexology - More from the Medical Community

Footsteps In Eden is my business. I am a reflexologist. I'm often asked to explain what reflexology is and what exactly I do. . . What are the benefits to the client? The answer is amazing, but not always easy to convey. How exciting to share what follows!

This morning I found this wonderful explanation of reflexology and its benefits on the website of Hadassah Medical Organization, Israel's leading university hospital. I'm excerpting a bit below and encouraging you to read and learn from the complete article by clicking here or on the link above.

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands, feet and ears that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body.

...Reflexology corrects the three negative factors involved in the disease process: 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.

Reflexology aims to improve and strengthen the weak areas of the body that are causing the condition or symptoms. This is achieved by targeting the problem areas through the reflex points found on or around the feet or hands.

Reflexology is offered in the Memphis, TN area by Footsteps In Eden. Contact information is available on our website.
