LANTRIP ENTERPRISES Reflexologist in Columbia, TN
Points of the foot work different areas of the body
There is a spot in your feet that connects to every part of your body!
Therefore, healthy feet make for a healthier you!!!
If something in your body hurts, getting reflexology on your feet has made ALOT of people feel better!!!
There is nothing more therapeutic for the mind and body than that of getting a good reflexology treatment. Health enthusaists, local athletes, senior citizens, children and residents concerned about their overall well-being have all benefitted from reflexology.
I do not make any "health claims" to heal people-one should always check with their physician before starting ANY new routines in their health regimen.
Applying various pressure ponits on the foot enables the therapist to work on many different segments of the body.
What is Reflexology?
The ancient healing art of reflexology has been known to man for many thousands of years. It was first practiced by the early Indian, Chinese and Egyptian peoples.
In 1913 Dr. William Fitzgerald, an American ear, nose and throat surgeon, introduced this therapy to the West. He noted that pressure on specific parts of the body could have an anaesthetising effect on a related area. Developing this theory, he divided the body into ten equal and vertical zones, ending in the fingers and toes. He concluded that pressure on one part of a zone could affect everything else within that zone. Thus, reflex areas on the feet and hands are linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone.
In the 1930's, Eunice Ingham, a therapist, further developed and refined the zone therapy into what is now known as foot reflexology. She observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body. Thus, when you treat the big toes there is a related effect in the head, and treating the whole foot can have a relaxing and healing effect on the whole body.
How Can Reflexology Help You?
The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of "imbalance", and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium and encourage healing.
I will use my hands to apply gentle pressure to the feet. For each person the application and the effect of the therapy is unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet, and by working on these points I can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased, and circulation and elimination is improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse.
Who Can Benefit From Reflexology?
Since reflexology treats the whole person, not the symptoms of disease, most people benefit from treatment. The therapy brings relief to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for all ages. Once your body is in-tune, it is wise to have regular treatments in order to help maintain health and well-being. An increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy as a way of relaxing, balancing and harmonising the body.
What Happens When You Go For Treatment?
On your first visit, we will have a preliminary talk. I will then begin to work on your feet, or hands if necessary, noting problem areas. There may be discomfort in some places, but it is fleeting, and is an indication of congestion or imbalance in a corresponding part of the body. For the most part, the sensation is pleasant and soothing. Reflexology will relax you while stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms.
Usually a treatment session lasts for about one hour. A course of treatment varies in length depending on your body's needs. I will discuss this with you at the first session. After the first treatment or two your body may respond in a very definite way: you may have a feeling of well-being and relaxation; or you may feel lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is transitory. It is, however, vital information for me as a reflexologist, as it shows how your body is responding to treatment.
So take time for yourself! Whether you choose a half hour or full hour treatment, your body and mind will feel revitalized upon the completion of your session. So go ahead-YOU DESERVE IT AND YOUR BODY WILL THANK YOU FOR IT!
