Reflexology works on the face, hands, feet and even the ears, and is an incredible way to stimulate the nervous system enabling all of your organs to perform at their optimum best.
Each area of your hand/foot/face/ear is connected to a part of your body and by applying pressure and massaging these specific pressure points you ultimately encourage these organs to function more efficiently.
Sounds incredible right? This crafty little healing therapy stems back from China, India and ancient Egypt dating back to 2300 BC, so has certainly been helping the world to heal throughout the ages.
Today's entry invites you try out 5 simple steps to helping relive the discomfort of carpel tunnel syndrome, whilst encouraging your body to heal it'self and eliminate toxins.
The motion you want to create when using reflexology is referred to as thumb walking:
Apply firm pressure to an area, shuffle forward, if you notice any grit or bubble like consistencies under the skin please do circular motions on the area and then shuffle forward, apply pressure again and shuffle forward. Do this until all the recommend points have been stimulated.
Step 1: The Cervical Vertebrae.
Start at the same point that is demonstrated in the diagram, apply pressure using the pad of your thumb and shuffle forward until you have stimulated all 7 points and reached the area just before your joint.
Go over this area several times. If any of the points are painful then please go over them as much as possible and do large circular movements. The pain simply shows that that the reflex point is out of balance so will require more attention. You will notice the pain diminish the more you go over it. Do this on both the right and left hand.
Step 2: The Thoracic Vertebrae
Step 3: The shoulder reflex.
Step 4: The Adrenal Glad Relfex
Step 5: The Arm and Elbow Reflex
