Reflexology – a time tested technique!

Reflexology – a time tested technique!

Foot Health Zone: Let’s explore the good health of our feet.

Did you know that each foot has 26 bones? Did you know the foot has areas or zones that when pressed are thought to affect the rest of the body?  It is described in one word – REFLEXOLOGY! It is thought that by applying pressure to certain areas of the foot one can enhance the healing power of the body. The Chinese have been doing this for 5000 years! Now, we know alternative medicine has always been out there, but few people really know very much about it. But now with the lovely computer we now have a world of information at our finger tips. Look up reflexology and see what you think. 

For me, I know that if my feet hurt, my fingers would be on those keys to follow the path to cheap, effective, and noninvasive healing. You know, if it has been kicking around for all those years, there just might be something in it! I like a nice long testing time before I try anything new, how about you?  All those drug recalls and long lists of side effects scare the heck out of me. Yep, a nice long test period sounds very good.  

Next, after some good reflexology techniques have been applied let’s end with a nice foot bath. A little baking sodawitch hazel, or Epsom salt in some warm water is the way to go. It’s a great way to watch TV or use your computer. Or you can stick your feet in some warm water and read a book to your kids – it’s never too soon to get the kids on the road to good habits. Your feet will be so happy and clean that your mood will be uplifted and all around you will be happy. 
Happy soaking!
