Have you ever thought about the fact that your feet support you through everything you do in life? Every place you walk, every bicycle you ride, bus you chase, cart you push, race you run, staircase you climb, every single day, is all because your feet supported the way. From our first steps we connect to the Earth by planting one foot after another, and from there we form strong roots for our active lives that unfold.
Each one of our tender loving tootsies has 26 bones, 19 muscles, 107 ligaments, and over 7000 nerve endings, all which get the daily pleasure of being stuffed into stylish (yet not always comfortable) shoes, some days for up to 12 hours or more. They take us on all the adventures of life at an average of 6000 steps per day, which let’s face it, is demanding work! And so, it is unfortunate that our five toed miracle workers don’t always get the love they so deserve.
Now onto the solution! Did you know that there is a renewing and rejuvenating experience you can do on your feet, and for your body, mind, spirit connection, and it’s called Reflexology? You may just need to experience it for yourself to know what it’s all about.
A Reflexology treatment is indeed a gift to the feet. It is a time to rest and give a break to our golden chariots that deserve much needed love and attention. The ancient art of Reflexology is a science that has been around for thousands of years, and is based on the idea that every organ and gland has a specific point of correlation that is found on the feet. By stimulating certain pressure points, energy is sent directly to any specific area, relieving pain or tension that was being held onto by the body. “Tingling, Electric, Popping, Energy” are common expressions used to describe sensations that can be experienced during a treatment. It is not often enough that we lay down comfortably with pillows to support us, with soft music playing in the background, with warm oil applied on our feet, and with our mind, body and soul at ease while our feet are ‘thoroughly massaged.’
Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it? If there is an acute or chronic issue going on, or if there are many issues that need to be addressed, Reflexology will help the body to regain and maintain a normal state of proper functioning.
Not only is a one-hour treatment extremely beneficial to help with outstanding issues, it is treatment that can be done once a month (or more if you like!) for preventative measures. The body is like a sponge. It will hold onto progress in its wellness memory banks for only so long before it dries up. Waiting too long can send the memory back into ‘normal functioning,’ with normal being the current ailment! With all the mountains to climb, oceans to swim, and buses to chase, treat your feet with the love they deserve. And wherever you are going next, be sure to take a moment to give thanks to your feet for getting you there!
