Reflexology: Tend to the Feet, Tend to the Body 

Reflexology is a system of applying pressure to certain points on the hands, feet and ears.

This complementary therapy works on the feet, hands and ears to help heal the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.

Let’s focus on the Feet
  • Your feet hold your entire body.
  • Your feet propel you forward and get you where you want to go
  • 3,000 nerve ends in your feet
  • You have 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, and 19 muscles in you feet
  • A bunion, a broken toe, or even a small splinter in your foot causes constant pain and irritation
  • Your feet reflexes to every single organ, muscle, bones, (everything in your body
  • FYI: Foot Reflexology is a powerful tool to help bring back balance to your body

Getting a Foot Reflexology session or a nice foot massage can lower your blood pressure, decrease anxiety and stress and help your digestion. “It really works” call 614-299-9438 to schedule a session!

If you take care of your feet-you are Happier and Healthier.

Elemental Reflexology™, integrates the ancient art of Ayurvedic reflexology with the modern energetic principles of Polarity.

Dr. Stone on Reflexology
  • “The feet are the most negative pole of the entire body and because of this fact many negative energy blocks are found here…Crystallization and hardness spell old age decay and death.”
  • “The whole body can be reached and benefited through the feet.”
  • “This is an art with a real scientific basis, where sore spots can be found and at once related to their corresponding fields in the upper areas of the body.”

 

Why is Reflexology so effective?

  • Working on the feet frees up stagnant energy, allowing it to be released and flow freely throughout the body.
  • The feet connect with the energetic emanations of the earth, helping to ground the body’s energy.
  • Due to gravitational forces, the feet may accumulate large deposits of acid and tension which affect the health of the entire body.
  • Touching the feet is a gesture that soothes and deeply affects a person. For thousands of years, a host would wash the feet of guests.

Reflexology reduces pain

Pain reduction is a significant result of reflexology work. Twenty-seven studies show positive outcomes for reflexology work ranging from “significant difference in” pain to “reduction in” pain.

 

Of note is the broad range of individuals whose pain is impacted by reflexology work. Included are individuals of all ages and health states: birthing mothers, menstruating women, phantom limb pain sufferers, lower back pain sufferers, kidney stone patients, senior citizens and individuals with pain resulting from surgery. Such a range speaks of impact on an underlying mechanism at work.

 

Reflexology improves blood flow

Improvement in blood flow is one of multiple mechanisms of action at work in reflexology technique application.

 

Research shows that reflexology work applied to a reflex area reflecting a body part prompts an improved blood flow to that body part: kidneys, intestines, and the brain (fMRI). Research also shows improved blood flow to the feet.
