Reflexology for Weight Control

The objective of the reflexology for weight control are:

bullet Tone the entire digestive system. You will gain maximum benefit from the food you eat.
bullet Energize the endocrine glands. This will promote balanced hormone secretion and appropriate appetite.
After the Reflexology Warm-Up work on key endocrine glands, including the pituitary (in the center of the bottom of the big toe), the thyroid (at the base of the big toe), and the adrenals (between the waistline and the diaphragm line, toward the inside of the foot). Working these reflexes will help create balance in the body and nervous system and help you get a grip on your appetite and eating.

Use your thumb and firmly walk it across the entire area in the arch of your foot, from the midline (waistline) up to the diaphragm line. The stomach reflex is on the left foot, the liver primarily on the right. Work both feet thoroughly thoroughly covering this area; moving up, down, around, and diagonally. This will stimulate the pancreas, gallbladder, kidneys, and adrenals.

Moving lower, below the waistline, you'll encounter the reflex areas for the colon. Reflex points for various aspects of the colon are divided between the two feet. Work up, down, across, and diagonally in this area with the thumb walk.

It is extraordinary how much a Reflexologist can learn about your health from your feet, and he or she may give you advice about what is discovered. This information is usually recorded on a foot chart or hand chart.
