The feet contain zones that represent all the internal organs and parts of the body, so they accumulate stress directly related to the feet but also to the whole person.
The science of the connection between parts and the whole
When referring to reflexology or reflexology, most people first think of foot reflexology. But foot treatment is part of a large family of reflexology-based methods, including bioenergy, chi-ki or prana. Reflexology is the science that studies the relationships and connections between parts and the whole, the connection between the interior and the exterior, using these connections to restore balance – healing. When harmony is restored, self-healing processes are initiated. Because of this approach, reflexotherapy can successfully cope with syndromes, chronic and other health problems when the cause cannot be diagnosed.
The two main branches of reflexology are macro and micro reflexology systems. Macro reflexology systems are acupuncture / acupressure, bioenergy healing, prana, chakra healing. These systems treat points or zones on the body, acting indirectly through reflexes on the whole body, even at “little more than the body.” The physical body is wrapped in thin energy bodies that form an aura around the body. And as the bioenergy vibrates with finer frequencies, it extends into the realm of spirituality. The principle of bioenergy methods could be summed up in a few sentences: “both inside and out.”, “Both up and down.”, “Both in Heaven and on Earth.”
Unlike macro systems, micro reflexology systems treat only a part of the body and affect the entire body, for example the foot, hands, ears, but there are many more. The iris, tongue, teeth, nose, face …, a total of 22 micro reflexology systems are listed. They are most often part of traditional medical systems and their tradition is several thousand years old.
Feet accumulate stress
Reflexology foot massage is different from ordinary foot massage because it takes into account the zones on them that are connected to particular parts of the body. Introductory relaxation is similar to regular massage, but treating the foot zones at first is uncomfortable and painful. True relief comes only after treatment. Still, it’s worth the trouble because the effect is exceptional. For more serious health problems, one therapy consists of at least 10 – 15 treatments, which are performed every other day. The day between breaks serves to cleanse the body of the stress relieved, which is usually pushed into reflexological zones for years.
The popularity of foot reflexology “thanks” to several of its features. First of all because the feet are very stressed. They carry the full weight of the body, and an additional, essential source of physical stress are the hard surfaces in urban areas, shoes and jobs that put particular strain on the feet. At the psychic level, the feet are the part of the body that accumulates stress related to material problems, fear for existence, experiences of “moving forward” or “running away” in any form. We could jokingly say that the feet are the “basement” of our being, into which we “thrust” all that we do not know what to do with it. that all that is surplus is deposited in our feet.
They contain zones representing all internal organs and body parts. The body protects organs by storing stress in foot zones or other reflexological systems such as hands or ears. In this way, besides the stresses directly related to the feet, they also accumulate reflexologically related to the whole person.
Foot reflexology is thought to have a 6000 year old tradition. The first drawings were found in the Egyptian priramids. Of similar ages are “zone maps” from India. Foot treatment can also be found in traditional Chinese medicine. This ancient knowledge was first transmitted to Europe, to the United Kingdom, and there are records from French sources. Subsequently, the knowledge was transferred to the US, and then worldwide.
There are numerous foot reflexology schools today that can be classified in several directions. The English direction does not use oil in the treatment, it is done “dry”, and the point treatment of the zones is emphasized, or in the professional jargon “punching”. The over-represented direction in the US uses oil in the treatment, with longer, sliding movements. The direction that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of foot zones uses sticks, which are sometimes wooden and some are stone or crystal. On this trail, a special method was developed that combines crystal therapy and zone treatment. The fourth direction deals with all previous lymphatic circulation, the disorder of which can be very pronounced in the legs, especially the feet.
Anatomy of reflexological zones on the foot
The human neurological system is “topologically” organized, which means that nerve fibers from one part of the body in the spinal cord are always in one place. At the top of the spinal cord, and especially in the lower parts of the brain, these neurological connections form “homunculus” or “human”. This pattern is also repeated in the higher parts of the brain, which allows the brain to know on which part of the body the stimuli are occurring, or which parts of the body need to be triggered. A very similar principle is the principle of reflexological systems.
In the “vertical” the whole body is divided into ten zones, which are reflexologically represented on the foot. As some teachers like to say in pictures, the zones are stacked over each other like when you put your clothes in your travel bag! Horizontally the most important landmarks are three lines – the line of the stitch, the line of the waist and the line of the hips. When everything comes together, there is a “little man” on his foot, lying on his back with his legs bent.
Active zone detection
The basic diagnostic method is to detect active zones that are specifically painful to pressure. In addition to this type of diagnostics, radioesthesia or manual muscle testing (applied kinesiology) is often used. It is important to note that zones can be active (painful) even before a pathological condition develops in the body, therefore they cannot be diagnosed with disease with the help of foot treatment! But the active reflexology zone is a sign of alarm because it speaks to the overload of stress in a particular part of the body. If the trend of stress buildup continues, it’s only a matter of time before the subclinical problem gets worse enough to become a disease.
Relaxation – balance – critical points – massage
As mentioned, indications for foot reflexology treatment are stress overload at multiple levels and locations in the body, chronic diseases, subclinical problems that create severely unbearable problems, and situations where an undiagnosed symptom cannot be diagnosed.
Problems that are not a strong side of foot reflexology are all turbulent, acute problems that need to be addressed quickly. Extreme care should also be taken in situations where health problems could be out of control, such as in heart patients, severe mental health problems and the like.
Contraindications are injured feet, skin diseases and neurological problems associated with the feet.
The treatment itself can take anywhere from ten to 45 minutes. Shorter treatments are more commonly administered when part of a longer therapy, when targeted at an already “known foot”. The complete treatment begins with introductory relaxation, followed by a balance of digestion, the locomotor system (spine, bones and muscles) and communication systems (lymph, bloodstream, nerves and bioenergy). This is followed by focused action on critical points and a final foot massage.
For preventative action, foot treatment is tailored to each individual. For more severe health problems, at least 10 to 15 treatments should be systematically done in one therapy. This is followed by a break that lasts at least as long as the therapy itself. Therapies can be repeated in a cycle of two to three. During this time, one can clearly see what can be done. As we often encounter a complex or unclear situation, it takes time for the reactions to be “clarified” and to gain a clearer insight into the situation. Patience is also required for chronic problems, as it has taken several years to create the problem. Since no aggressive methods or means are used, it takes time to achieve positive results. Satisfactory speed is one month of therapy per year of health problem creation. But this ratio is often significantly “faster”.
Miracles do happen, but they cannot be ordered. In twenty-five years of practice, I have seen and participated in many. In a holistic approach to health, it is not the person but the disease that is treated. Therefore, reflexology foot massage is an exceptional method that can do a great deal for your health. For its simplicity, you can apply it yourself. Health is not just the absence of disease. The goal is quality of life, and foot massage is a powerful tool for achieving this goal.
