"ANOINTING YOUR LIFE"
REFLEXOLOGY

  The origins of Reflexology evidently reach back to ancient Egypt as evidenced by inscriptions found in the physician’s tomb at Saqqara in Egypt. The translations of the hieroglyphics are as follows: "Don’t hurt me."     The practitioner’s reply: " I shall act so you praise me. "






  Reflexology is the physical act of applying pressure to the feet and hand with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.

  The foot is one of the most sensitive parts of the body, containing  over 7,200 nerve endings, all of which are  stimulated during a reflexology treatment. The feet represent a microcosm of the body, with the body's anatomy   laid-out in a similar arrangement on the soles (see below), ie: the big toe represents the head (pituitary) and the    back of the heel represents the lower back. 

  Reflexology recognizes that there are 10 longitudinal zones running  the length of the body, from the top of the head, though and to the ends of the fingers and toes. The zones are of equal width and extend  right through the   body from front to back. Tension in one part of a zone  can affect the rest of the organs in the same zone. 

  The right foot represents the right side of the body, and similarly the left foot represents the left side of the  body. The spleen located in the left of the body, has its reflex point only in the left foot.  Paired organs, such as    kidneys, will have their reflex points in both feet. The zones and reflex points mapped out on the feet create a three dimensional picture of the body, with all its systems and organs (see below).
