salt levels in the blood. The excess calcium salts leads to calcification within the cells (firstly within the cell organelle mitochondria, the prime energy centre of the cell.) and tissues causing the crystal deposits.
Reflexology is highly effective in reducing stress and pain throughout the body by putting the client into a deeply relaxed state. In this state, the function of the nervous system shifts mainly into its optimal parasympathetic (involuntary) mode. When the body is in this state of relaxation, it has the ability to re-establish its balance and consequently its self-healing potential.
To highlight the importance of cell function it is important to understand that all of our bodily systems are architected from our cells. A mass of cells design tissue types, composition of tissue types form our organs and many organs make up our bodies systems.
Our feet correspond to the state of our body, mind and soul.
We have thousands of accessible nerve endings in the feet (approx 14,000) and each nerve
impulse transmits and transports sensory messages to and from the brain.
A reflexologist is trained to locate areas of stress contained within areas of the body through mapping nerve pathways that originate in the feet (hands/ears/face). Stimulation of specific nerve pathways with the use of hand techniques refreshes the trails of communication from one functioning system of the body to another. The result is a sense of unity, wholeness and well-being.
Prolonged exposure to states of stress upset the natural chemical balances within the body, resulting in higher levels of acidity and calcium
