Restore Natural Harmony to your Body

Reflexology is a science that maps out the reflexes to the whole body on the feet and/or the hands. It involves the stimulation of the acupressure points of the feet, hands and ears to release energy blocks.  It is a deeply relaxing, therapeutic treatment which facilitates the restoration of balance and maintenance of wellbeing.

By applying pressure to the reflex points, the natural flow is revitalized. Reflexology assists the body to balance body energies. The energy flow takes specific paths through the body and converges on the feet and hands at reflex points. This healing art assists to release and remove toxins from the body, relieve pain, relax muscles as if having a massage of the entire body, increase circulation, reduce lympahtic system disorders (lymphedema, infections, leukemia), gain more flexibility, obtain better performance; concentration, sports, etc., reduce mental, physical and emotional stress and tension, lessen addictive cravings, heal itself, lose or gain weight as desired, improve vision, reduce allergies, improve body alignment, and much more.

Reflexology is an ancient oriental art redisovered by William Fitzgerald, M.D. in 1913. He had a hospital in New England that used reflexology exclusively with great success. No pain pills, muscle relaxants, or sleeping pills were needed or prescribed, but as time went on, people tool less responsibility for their own health, looking to the modern (allopathic) doctor and or the "magic pill" to cure their ailments after they had used and abused their bodies. When antibiotics were discovered during Word War II, they were considered a panacea for most ills and reflexology fell into disuse. In recent years, as the public began retaking responsibility for their own health again, reflexology became more widely used.

The term reflexology is used to mean reflection rather than reflex. The idea is that in reflexology, the reflex points found on the soles of feet, palms of the hands and ear will act as small "mirrors", reflecting the whole body structure. It is different from acupuncture, where tiny needles (instead of hands of the reflexologists) are used to stimulate the reflex zones over the whole body. It is a hand-on treatment intended for vitality and well-being.

A person who is qualified to practice reflexology is called a reflexologist.

In reflexology, it is believed that there is a "vital energy" that is circulating between organs of the human body, which penetrates into every living cell. Whenever this energy is blocked, the zone of blockage will be affected. The reflex zones can reflect the blockage of energy in different organs. (Isabelle's Reflexology charts, Organ/Meridian Referenced) Therefore, if someone has a problem in a particular organ, when a reflexologist presses on the corresponding reflex zone or reflexology pressure points, the person will experience pain.

The pain is believed to originate from the deposition of crystals in the reflex zone. With proper massaging techniques, these crystalline structures could be broken down and the pain would be gone. Simultaneously, the pressure applied to the reflex zones (print a free reflexology zone chart) by the reflexologist is thought to pass through the nerves to dissipate energy blocks. It is therefore believed that reflexology can help heal organ sickness.

Testimonials- Isabelle doesn't list testimonials on this website, however, she does wish to mention a remarkable woman, Valerie Greene. Many of you may indeed know who she is, and how reflexology was and still is a regular part of her life.Valerie is sought out as a national keynote speaker delivering a powerful story of courage, determination and success. She is the Author of The Fire Within: A True Story of Triumph over Tragedy, a powerful story of courage, determination and success. There are several healing methods/modalities that were crucial to Valerie's healing process; Reflexology was one of the natural healing methods that she utilizes today on a regular basis.

How Does Reflexology work?

The term reflexology is used to mean reflection rather than reflex. The idea is that in reflexology, the reflex zones found on the soles of feet, palms of the hands and ear will act as small mirrors, reflecting the whole body structure. It is different from acupuncture, where tiny needles (instead of hands of the reflexologists) are used to stimulate the reflex zones over the whole body.

Whenever this energy is blocked, the zone of blockage will be affected. The reflex zones can reflect the blockage of energy in different organs. Therefore, if someone has a problem in a particular organ, when a reflexologist presses on the corresponding reflex zones or points, the person will experience pain.

The pain is believed to originate from the deposition of crystals in the reflex zone. With proper massaging techniques, these crystalline structures could be broken down and the pain would be gone.

Through day to day living the body takes on toxins through air pollution, food additives, bacteria, etc., and stress. The body eliminates toxins through the four different routes which are the Colon, Kidneys, Lungs, and Skin. When the body has toxins in excess of what the body can eliminate, it stores the toxins in its weakest organ, i.e., upper respiratory system, a shoulder, etc. Reflexology enhances the healing process and assists the body to return to optimum health by increasing the circulation, relaxing the muscles and normalizing the glands. By so doing, the body dumps the toxins from the stored areas into the bloodstream once again, so the body has an opportunity to rid itself of the toxins through the four routes of elimination.

Reflexology affects the body in various ways. Crystals build up at the nerve endings in your feet and hands and by a deep pressure on specific points and/or areas, the crystals are crushed, releasing any blockage. Also energy currents run along meridians to every organ, gland, and nerve. When these meridians are clogged, currents are reduced and malfunctioning glands and organs create illness in the body. Again by deep pressure to the reflexes, pain can be stopped and a healing energy sent to all body parts.

Benefits of Reflexology

One of the benefits of reflexology is that it helps to release endorphins - chemical messengers - which have the same effect as morphine in suppressing pain by blocking the transmission of pain impulses from one neuron to another. The overall effect is a sense of calm, euphoria, optimism, and even joy. Also because very cell has a memory bank of pain, pleasure, etc., based upon past and present experiences at the mental, emotional, and physical levels, these experiences may come up during a reflexology session and much releasing is possible.
