  1. Eunice Ingham
    named reflexology
  2. 1st step in interrupting and breaking stress cycles
    relaxation
  3. Define reflexology
    manipulating reflex areas in feet/hands that correspond to specific body parts, organs, and systems
  4. zone therapy
    • 10 zones run vertically (big toe to pinky)
    • -energy moves through like electricity
    • -any blockage or congestion in a certain zone will restrict flow and may affect anything w/n that zone
    • -therapy applied to a certain zone will affect that whole zone
    • -energy zones pass through feet/hands- they are important areas in accessing all the body
  5. Dr William Fitzegerald
    zone therapy
  6. benefits to reflexology
    • relaxation
    • toxins-stress
    • circulation-increases circulation blood lymph fluids
    • nerves
    • balance
    • energy
    • prevention
    • non-invasive
    • efficieny-addresses ALL the systems of the body
    • simplicity
  7. Health responses
    • -bodies natural waste eliminators
    • -different responses to different levels of toxcity inbody
    • -superficial tention, nervous system
  8. reflexologists DO NOT
    • diagnose
    • prescribe
    • make claims about specific results
  9. possible post tx reactions
    • increased energy
    • temp-cold flu like symptons
    • cold sores
    • change in blood sugar (diabetes)
    • diarrhea
    • change in menstral cycle
    • change in skin
    • chnage in sleep pattern

    • 8. diaphram deep breathing release
  13. relaxation technique-spinal twist
    • start at lower spine
    • both hands medial side thumbs next to eachother planter surface
    • hand near heal staionary
    • twist joints with awareness w/ hand closest to toes
    • move hands toward toes
    • go till index finger of twisting hand reaches cervical spine
  14. treatment patterns
    • 1. spinal ares
    • 2. ball of the foot
    • 3. waist line to diaphragm line
    • 4. waist line to pelvic line

    • 1/16 of an inch
    • no lifting
    • anchor in some part of the body
    • consistant pressure
