Foot Reflexology

Foot Reflexology is an applied pressure therapy that involves stimulating reflex points that are located on the foot. These foot reflex points correspond to specific areas of the body and when used singly or in combination, produce therapeutic benefit.

Blood Circulation Theory:

Substances such as uric acid are retained in the feet where they settle due to the effects of gravity which will cause obstruction of circulation and make the heart work harder. This results in malnourishment of the tissues and organs. After a long period, the function of the organs will decrease and discomfort will be felt. After massage of the foot, the temperature of the foot will increase. The blood will flow faster, from 12 mm per second to 25 mm per second. At the same time, the deposits can be broken apart, and along with increased blood circulation, can be expelled from the body through the urinary system and other dispelling organs. After massage of the feet for 3 to 5 days, the urine will be turbid and have a strong odor. The patient will feel comfortable and energetic. This illustrates how Foot Reflexology can increase blood circulation, reduce heart burden, and increase metabolism.

Nerve and Humoral Regulation:

When certain organs are not functioning well, there will appear abnormal changes in certain areas of the feet, such as an “air bubble” feeling, cord, granule, or nodule feeling. Stimulating these areas can cause pain. By nerve response, a series of nerve and humoral regulations will occur which stimulates potential energy, increases immunity and anti-disease effect. This can also stop the original pathogenic response.
