Video: ❶ Reflexive Foot Massage At Home
Even in ancient times, doctors knew that there are many reflex points on the human body, acting on which, you can influence the work of internal organs and even treat some diseases. Reflex massage is a useful and pleasant procedure, and since a very large number of active points are located on the soles of the feet, reflex foot massage is extremely effective. Location: Location:
By stimulating active points on the feet, the masseur normalizes the energy supply to each of the reflex zones, which means that it stimulates the nervous system and distributes energy throughout the body, normalizing the functioning of internal organs. Certain areas on the surface of the skin of the feet are massaged, and thus tension is relieved, and when painful areas are massaged, pain is relieved, the body's defenses are enhanced.
The reflex foot massage is based on classical Chinese acupuncture, based on the inextricable connection between points on the surface of the human skin and its internal organs, due to which reflex zones are formed, called meridians in acupuncture.
The feet reflect the general condition of the internal organs of a person - at one time the scientist Fitzgerald, who studied reflex massage and its effect on a person, identified ten longitudinal zones of internal organs and three transverse zones. According to his research, each zone has its own energy field associated with certain internal organs, and the massage therapist, pressing on some areas of the foot, can not only treat some diseases, but also diagnose the state of a person's internal organs, monitoring his spontaneous response to massaging and palpation movements.
If in any zone during foot massage there is pain or discomfort, this means that the work of the corresponding organ is impaired. If such a painful spot is found during the massage, it should be massaged more thoroughly and gently, improving blood circulation under the skin and reducing pain.
To enhance the effect of reflex massage, you can use special ointments and creams based on medicinal herbs and other substances in the process, as well as affect active points with the help of heat or cold - for example, massage the feet with ice and apply gel cushions to them.
