Reflexology: What is It?
 
 
 

Gladys Bray, MIRI

 

Reflexology uses points along the feet and hands to analyse the state of health of the body as a whole, and using hand massage on these areas, releases blockages by increasing circulation of the blood.

For instance, the foot could contain hard skin on the ball of the foot, which is aligned to the lung area, indicating breathing issues, such as asthma, smoking or other pulmonary ailments, which may yet have to make themselves known to the sufferer..

A science praciced for thousands of years by the Chinese, and developed into its modern format by the American doctor William Fitzgerald, it has been refined over time into a number of schools, most of which concentrate on the feet, some of which concentrate on the hands and more of which concentrate on both the massage of the hands and feet.Reflexology uses points along the feet and hands to analyse the state of health of the body as a whole, and using hand massage on these areas, releases blockages by increasing circulation of the blood.
