Reflexology is a therapeutic method of easing pain and enhancing health throughout the entire body by stimulating pressure points that are found on the hands and feet. Reflexology is not simple as we think because it needs a long training to master and maximize the use of it. Although most people go to a professional reflexologist just for this, we can still manage to get the benefits of this therapy by doing it on our own or with the help of our loved ones.

Today we will show you how to perform a basic reflexology therapy on yourself, but first, we will tell you all the health benefits that it could provide to your body and how it works.

How does reflexology works?

Reflexology is a type of science based on the belief that there are "zones" or reflex areas on the hands and feet that communicate with all of the glands, organs, parts and systems located within or on the body.

According to some professional reflexologist that applying some pressure to some points in the hands and feet using a thumb, finger and hand techniques will result in a stress reduction and muscle pain reliever. The big reduction of stress is said to develop several physiological changes that can treat a number of illnesses.

There are also studies that reflexology can treat different ailments including, diabetes, premenstrual syndrome, multiple sclerosis, cancer, symptomatic idiopathic detrusor over-activity, and dementia.

Now that you already know what health benefits you can get when you perform a basic reflexology, let us start discussing on how to do it on your own.

1. The first thing you are going to do is sit on a comfortable but solid chair. Lift up one foot and rest it on the knee reflexology-1 of your opposite leg so that you can easily rub and massage the bottom of that foot. Make sure to keep your back straight and not to slouch.

2. Next, you need take a look at your Acupressure Foot Chart (click here) and identify what part of your body that you want to treat. For example, if you are having neck pain, find the number that the “neck” area is listed as. Then find the corresponding area of your foot located on the chart that is labelled with the same number. This is the area of the foot that you will be manipulating.

3. Once you have found the area of the foot that you will be applying pressure on, use the tip of your thumb to press and knead that area deeply for between 1-2 minutes. Then repeat this with the opposite foot and the opposite thumb.

4. Repeat this process for any other area on your body that you want to treat.

You can perform this therapy daily, you can also teach your loved ones this basic therapy so they can help you to perform for you to help you relax more without doing anything but just to lie down in your bed. Enjoy!
