Reflexology Today: The Stimulation of the Body's Healing Forces Through Foot Massage

Front Cover
Inner Traditions / Bear & Co, 1984 - Health & Fitness - 68 pages
Stimulating the body's healing forces through massage of the reflex areas of the feet helps to increase blood circulation and relax tension in the nervous system. Reflexology encourages the whole body to renew itself so that all processes are working in harmony. As a diagnostic tool, reflexology reveals, by the tenderness of different parts of the foot, what organs or areas of the body are in a state of disorder.
Provides a list of ailments that respond to reflexology, including glaucoma, migraine, liver disease, cataracts, asthma, neuritis, shingles (herpes zoster), arthritis, and sinus trouble. And by stimulating the nervous and vascular systems, reflexology can do much to retard the ageing process.
