What Is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a Chinese Medicine therapy that can be applied to any body part. It is the study that each part of the body is a reflection of the overall body and therefore a precise map of the entire body’s systems. The ear, for example, has points that can be used to affect exact organ systems. At YAO we might use the ear as a vehicle for acupuncture or even bleeding therapies in our Medicine Department, and it is utilized with the knowledge that it is a map of the body’s many systems. The hand can also be a reflection of the body…the finger tip, and so on. Predominantly, however, in YAO’s Bodywork department, we use reflexology with the foot. And, let’s be honest, having your feet touched is AMAZING! We’re on them all day and that little extra love goes a LONG way. The practice of reflexology does requires a professional therapist trained in this modality in order to apply treatment to their patients and we have them!
This map of the foot can show us where challenges may be for our patients. Tenderness and tension in the certain parts of the toes can be relating to the issues in nose and sinuses and therefore the subtle release of these points can in turn have a relief on stagnation in those respective areas to which it relates back. They can also be relating to organs that are particularly imbalanced in the individual: thyroid, heart, kidney, liver and so on. It is a wonderful therapy that truly can enhance what Dr. Daniel Hudson, DAOM, LAc is working on with patients in the Medicine Department.
Foot Massage vs. Reflexology
People may confuse both terms by thinking the results of each method are ultimately the same. However, both concepts – foot massage and reflexology – are very different, both in their application and the results. As discussed above, reflexology involves the use of different techniques to affect different parts of the body. This is achieved by targeting specific areas on the foot.
A foot massage, on the other hand, does not require the use of meticulous techniques or the in-depth knowledge of Chinese Medicine reflexology points clearly required by reflexologists. Instead, a foot massage is a less sophisticated, but still an incredibly enjoyable therapy, that involves the use of massage techniques to provide better circulation in the foot area and to alleviate stress and tension in different parts of the body.
At YAO we combine the use of both. The flowing nature of massage with the intensely therapeutic and skilled practice of reflexology.
What Are the Benefits YAO’s Foot Massage & Reflexology?
Both reflexology and foot massages can provide different benefits to those looking to improve their overall health. While both concepts are different, they can help treat the symptoms caused by various illnesses and conditions as well as simultaneously addressing the root cause.
Reflexology has been used in people who face chronic conditions such as cancer. Cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy can suffer from neuropathy in their hands and feet. Implementing reflexology after a chemotherapy regime can help patients feel more relaxed. This traditional medicine method can also help cancer patients feel less stressed and anxious, and it can improve their sleep.
Reflexology can also help alleviate the symptoms associated with arthritis. Targeting places such as the hands can help improve arthritis by reducing pain and swelling or improving a patient’s range and ease of motion. Reflexology has also been known to stimulate better circulation, which can help keep organs in good shape and promote the regrowth of damaged cells.
The benefits that everyone can receive are removing blockages and stagnation and increasing overall function of the entire body systems by simply touching the foot with highly skilled and knowledgeable hands.
Foot Massage Benefits
While foot massages are not seemingly as sophisticated as reflexology, they provide significant benefits to all patients. For instance, correctly applying a foot massage can help improve circulation, mitigate the symptoms of PMS and menopause, reduce swelling, decrease stress and tension, and provide a greater sense of relaxation and improved sleep.
Denver Chinese Hospital & Clinic Offering Reflexology and Foot Massages
If you are looking for an alternative to traditional medicine to help you treat the symptoms associated with your condition, reflexology and foot massages can be a great way to dip your toe in the water. For centuries, Chinese culture has implemented these and other methods to help people feel well and increase longevity and vitality.
At YAO’s Chinese Medicine Hospital & Clinic, we understand the difficulties associated with chronic conditions. That is why we provide all our clients with alternatives that can help them improve their health holistically.
