Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize and bring homeostasis to your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped onto your feet. I trained under Claire Marie Miller, LMBT for my knowledge with Reflexology. She says, Foot reflexology has its origins in ancient oriental massage. Reflex points correspond to various organs and structures of the body. Massaging in a gentle circular stroke or direct pressure will break up crystal like deposits around the reflex points. This promotes optimal organ and nerve function, as well as increasing lymphatic and circulatory flow. Treatments have been found to produce a deeply relaxing and therapeutic response. Many clients report they are as relaxed as if they had a full body massage. Reflexology sessions can increase digestive response and constipation relief, bring about sinus drainage, perhaps even while in session, decrease bronchi and lung congestion, stimulate the endocrine system, stimulate the organs, reduce muscular tension in the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, sciatic area and spine, reduce swelling in the feet and lower limbs, increase lymphatic, nerve and blood circulation, and kidney stones have been reported to pass with the stimulation of the kidney reflexes.
