In the previous post we talked about what Reflexology is and I mentioned ‘blocked energy’.
“These ‘reflexes’ become blocked with toxins, or crystal deposits, under the skin.”
Where do the blockages come from?
If we think of our energy pathways as a river and when we are feeling well and happy the river is flowing smoothly and energetically. If the river gets obstructed then the flow is disrupted and there will be a build up of sediment and debris such as leaves and twigs. If this build up is not cleared away then the flow stops. This causes problems both upstream and downstream. If the energy in our body is affected and a blockage occurs this can cause a build up of toxins and waste (upstream) or a deficiency of nutrients and energy (downstream)
Some causes of blockages:
- The air we breathe
- The food we eat
- The fluids we drink
- Lack of exercise
- Negative thoughts
How does this make us feel?
These toxins have the ability to cause excess tiredness, skin irritations, muscle fatigue, immune problems, memory loss, depression, weight gain, sleep issues, headaches, constipation and hypersensitivity. In some circumstance these may become chronic illnesses if left unchecked.
These are just a few symptoms and these are by no way exhaustible. Everyone is different and so may react in different ways to the same toxins.
So how can Reflexology help?
When the reflexologist works with the ‘reflexes’, they cause signals to stimulate the cells and the nervous system. The energy impulses and flow will be improved through working on the zones and meridians, this will start the process of the body’s self healing repair. This in turn will help the ‘river’ to start to flow smoothly and energetically again and restore balance
