Good morning, good morning, good morning! How many of you woke up this morning knowing you would accomplish that one thing you have been meaning to do, or knew you should have done for quite some time, but you’re just too busy with work and the kids and the last three seasons of (insert current Netflix series here). We feel you. Today is that day for us. Welcome to the very first post of our blog. Or rather, should we say, “Welcome to the World of Reflexology as we know it.”
This is the beginning of a beautiful thing. Posts about health and reflexology and the body and life and Downton Abbey (maybe not. You get the idea). But mostly posts about reflexology, because that is what we do.
You have heard it all before. Life is about balance, the ying and the yang. The push the pull. Believe it or not, your body is all about balance too. When it gets out of balance, whether it be from emotional stress (anxiety, fear, sadness) or environmental stress (think bad habits), it doesn’t respond to invaders the way it should. Therefore, you get sick. Nobody has time for that.
Never fear, we are here with a solution. Your body is engineered to heal itself. The lymphatic system is all about that. It is the cleansing process of the body. It guards against invaders such as bacteria, viruses and disease. It removes waste from tissue and flushes out toxins and excess water. When this system doesn’t function properly, you end up with congestion and sounding like Sneezy and Dopey at the same time.
Lymph relies on circulation. What happens when you start feeling under the weather? You sit down on the couch and watch the fourth season, like the good patient you are. This is where reflexology comes in. By focusing on the areas of the feet the correspond with the chest, neck, shoulder, groin, thymus, spleen and upper lymphatics, your lymphatic system will get the support it needs to give your immune system the extra boost to get you over the hill of your next cold.
You can also increase lymph circulation by pointing, flexing and rotating your feet. Pretty simple huh? That is the point. Balance and simplicity for a healthier and happier you!
