30 days of hormone balancing (22) – Reflexology can help


No 22 – Reflexology can help

Reflexology is a natural health technique which can be of great benefit when trying to bring balance to your hormonal system.

Reflexology is a treatment that can be safely used when it is not convenient to treat other body parts. As a non-intrusive technique, it acts indirectly. Reflexology can be a relaxing therapy that works on many levels, soothing, calming, balancing and boosting the entire body.

Reflexology is based on the principle that congestion, or tension, in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body. These parts, known as reflex points, have a direct link with all parts of the body. Reflex points can also be found on the hands and other body parts such as the ear; however, the most commonly treated area is the feet.

www.dothurley.comMassaging the feet using certain techniques stimulates these reflex points, which in turn stimulate the organs of the body. There are thousands of nerve endings in the hands and feet and by applying pressure to a specific area, other parts of the body can be affected (for instance, pressure to the fingertips affects the head and sinuses).

The therapist can detect the tiny deposits, tensions and imbalances in the feet which cause energy blockages and lead to disease. By gently working on these points the therapist can remove the energy blockages, encouraging the free flow of energy around the whole body. Tensions are eased and circulation and elimination improved. Reflexology helps to restore the body’s natural equilibrium and encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace.

Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) is a highly effective reflexology technique where the feet are briefly treated whilst the client is in a standing, weight-bearing position, rather than in a more conventional reclining position. It appears that the body is more responsive to a healing and energetic stimulation when treated briefly in a standing position. It has been suggested that VRT can reach deeper, possibly new, reflexes, allowing homeostasis or balance to be achieved in a shorter time.



VRT treatments are much shorter than the traditional reflexology treatments and are usually combined with traditional reflexology .  The response of weight bearing reflexes is much stronger and the effects are felt more quickly by the client. Sometimes immediate improvement is observed with only three minutes of VRT at the beginning and/or end of a conventional reflexology treatment.

A particular sequence of VRT, the endocrine flush and the endocrine balance is especially effective when hormonal balance is your main objective.


ACTION: If you have never tried reflexology then find a local therapist and give it a try.
