The Benefits of Reflexology

Thank you for taking the time to stop by – I always look forward to connecting with readers  on My Blog.  At the Quartz Path, My priority and focus is  holistic wellness.  Today,  there are many different holistic modalities available. My intention is to discuss a variety of these options.
What is Reflexology ? There are 7200 reflex points located on both of the feet. Each individual reflex has a correspondence to an area of the human body.  During a full traditional reflexology session, a light pressure is applied using specific hand, thumb and finger techniques. Three to five pounds of pressure is typically  applied. Reflexology is a versatile and mobile therapy. It may be used on both the very young or the elderly. A full length session usually lasts about an hour.
At The Quartz Path, I am able to offer custom protocols, after reviewing My Client’s health history record. Here is a list of areas where a professional foot reflexology session may benefit.
  • Digestive Problems
  • Allergies
  • Back Discomfort
  • Natural Thyroid Balance
  • Diabetes
  • Premenstrual Tension
  • Menopause

For best results, I recommend a series of six sessions. For the first session, more time may be needed to record and review a Client’s health history.  When a Client has health issues,  emotional trauma or distress  may be a factor for the Client as well. I focus on the full traditional foot reflexology session. All health and personal information given to Me is in the strictest confidence. Each person is totally unique, and responses to a session are individual.  However, Reflexology may stimulate the body’s systems to detoxify.  As a part of My protocol I check in with a Client to document responses to a treatment.  The Client may report  a runny nose, a mild increase in urination, sleepiness, itchiness, or vivid dreams. It is always  fascinating to participate in the healing process.

The benefits of Reflexology include improved circulation and immune system function, detoxification, improved glandular function, and increased stamina and vitality. If an area of the body is diseased, the body will heal in the worst area first, in the order of priority.The body has a brilliant internal control system – the central nervous system. It is sensitive to everything around us. Healing is a process unique in each individual.

Listen to the signals Your body sends You. These signals often provide clues to overall health, and well being. Take action when these messages are sent.   Are You feeling sleepy ?  Take a nap. If You are hungry, make sure observe a proper meal schedule. If You suffer from pain, talk to Your Doctor. Too often people ignore the most obvious indicators, neglecting the need for rest or ignoring regular healthy meals. Plan Your routines to include time for healthy meals. Instead of working extra long hours,  learn to delegate and to take breaks. Spend time on a hobby, or, visit family and friends. Learn to say no to activities when You are overbooked and overwhelmed. Learn to focus on one project at a time, instead of taking on too many responsibilities.
