Everyone knows the soothing power of a simple foot massage. This feeling of relaxation is enhanced many times over with the science of reflexology. Like mirrors, points on your feet reflect specific organs, joints, and other bodily systems, and applying gentle pressure to these points stimulates the body's ability to heal itself. Press lightly on the base of the big toe, for example, to ease headaches; rotate that same toe to alleviate stiffness in the neck; perform pressure circles on the little toe to relieve bursitis. Whether you target specific problem areas such as ulcers, cystitis, muscle pain, poor skin tone, or digestive disorders, or simply want to promote a general feeling of well-being by cleansing the body of toxins, the benefits of reflexology are almost limitless. Practice the proper techniques and enjoy the healing powers of this simple, totally natural way to restore balance to the body.Brown, Denise Whichello is the author of 'Reflexology Basics' with ISBN 9780806978451 and ISBN 0806978457.
