    Ten Energy Zone 1

    Reflexology embodies the relationship of the reflexes in the feet to all of the glands and organs in the body.  Just how does one small area of the foot affect something like the pituitary gland? Just what is the link?

    This is where Zone Theory becomes significantly important to every Reflexologist. The zones are like the wiring in a house. The reflexes travel through the zones similar to electricity through the wires, but please note that this analogy is not to be confused with the nervous system in the body. Reflexes as far as
    we know today, are not nerves.

    The link from the feet to the organs and the glands in the body is a series of imaginary longitudinal lines, each encompassing a zone.  In order to locate the zones accurately in the arms and hands, the thumbs need to be placed toward the body, the opposite of the anatomical position.

    Any sensitivity located in specific areas on the foot will signal to you that there could be congestion in that area. It should become evident then, that by working the entire foot, the entire side of the body is being affected (the left foot representing the left half of the body).

    It is important to remember another significant aspect of Reflexology–an abnormality in any part of the zone may affect anything in that zone.

    ORGANS – THE INSIDE STORY 2

    The body is packed with vital organs and glands that are packed on top of everything else in the body.

    Start at the spine (the midline of the body) as a means of orienting yourself to the relationship between the foot reflex points and the organs of the body. Now, you have a reference point for each foot. Then use the waistline guideline for your horizontal or lateral marker. The most important body organs are located in four distinct quadrants.

    The feet are a reflection of the body with all its glands, nerves, and organs having distinct locations on the feet. Being thoroughly familiar with this concept of location makes the zone theory so much easier.

    Reflexology is a simple, yet dynamic approach to health. Through reflex massage one can eliminate the
    causes and symptoms of sickness and pain from virtually every part of the body. There are “main circuits” to every organ, gland, and nerve, and these circuits have endings or pressure points in the feet, hands, and other parts of the body. By massaging or working these pressure points, pain can not only be stopped, but a healing force can be sent to all parts of the body by opening up closed “electrical lines” that have shut off the life force.

    Reflexology gets to the cause of a problem by restoring the energy flow to the body’s many different
    systems and functions. The reflex points are energy junctions that relay and reinforce energy along
    meridian lines of the body, passing energy toward the organs and the nervous system. Reflexology not
    only helps nature open up these channels when congested, but also sends a supply of magnetic vital life
    force charging through the channels within the body like a healing shock wave.

    About Zone Therapy 3

    ABOUT ZONE THERAPY

    The earth has longitudinal and latitudinal lines through it, which makes the outer grid of the earth and is used by scientists and by weather tracking. Zone therapy within our bodies is similar, meaning that we have a grid in the electrical body that runs through us. The longitudinal lines run straight up and down through the body. In simple terms, if you were to put your right hand on your right thigh and if you line up your thumb with the big toe, push your leg out in front of you, and draw an imaginary line from your big toe up through the center of your body up and down in the side of your arm out to the thumb, that
    would be Zone 1.

    We have five zones, so the little toe and little finger are Zone 5. You would divide the body in two, right through the center of the body, so you have five on the left and five on the right.

    It is akin to electricians who can take a picture of a home and find out where heat may be leaking out or where electricity is being lost. The power company can photograph a home and there will be blue, red, and green spots around the house that shows where there may need to be more insulation in the attic. Essentially, they are photographing the energy. There is a temperature difference within our body, which is very similar to the Kirilian photography.

    Not only do these zones run lengthwise, but they pass through the body, so that a zone located on the front of the body can also be reached from behind. All the organs and parts of the body lie along one or more of these zones.

    Zone Therapy
    In Zone Therapy each numbered line represents the center of its respective zone on the body. These energy channels run longitudinally through the body.

    It is a wonderful referral basis in working with patients and clients, or even people you are talking with. If they have something that is troubling them at the second toe you can draw that line right up through the inside of the shin bone through the knee and the thigh, which comes up through the inner groin area as well as up into the lungs and down through the arm into the hand.

     

    Also, there are referral areas–basically, the palm means the bottom of the foot; the inside of the forearm can refer to the calf of the through the body. The outer side of the arm can refer to the front of the shinbone.  The front of the upper arm refers to the back of the thigh, etc.

     

    So in zone therapy that’s a very powerful way to teach people who have these different tweeks of pain or even concentrated areas of pain that it may not necessarily be coming from that area. That is what referral pain is.

     

    Reflexology charts show the points of the hands and the feet. There are also auricular charts, which show the points on the ears that cover all of the organs, just as in our hands and feet. We also have emotional
    body points in our ears as well.

     

    Do you recall ever having little twinges or pings in your body and you wonder what it is? You apply this also to the meridians because we are a layered effect of many subtle systems. You may have a tweek over
    here–and oddly enough, it’s your gall bladder. You may have one of those little bites in the back of the calf, your gastrocnemius muscle–and it may be your spleen meridian. We are a very complicated being and these charts are very valuable tools. We are electrical beings–we have an emittance of frequency.

     

    Each zone can be considered a channel for the intangible life energy, called Chi in oriental medicine. Stimulating or “working” any zone in the foot by applying pressure with the thumbs and fingers affects
    the entire zone throughout the body.

     

    For example, working a zone on the foot along which the kidneys lie will release vital energy that may be blocked somewhere else in that zone, such as in the eyes. Working the kidney reflex are on the foot will therefore revitalize and balance the entire zone and improve functioning of the organ.

    Zone Markings 5

    Study this diagram to place in mind the zones of the body. Since there are ten fingers and ten toes, there
    are ten zones of the limbs and all parts of the body. Each line is drawn through the center of its respective zone, and the entire zone includes all parts and organs through which the respective zone line passes.

     

    The right and left sides of the body are the same and each one passes through the body from front to back, or from back to front. This is true of the legs and arms, also the feet and hands. Take any of the internal organs of the body and determine what zone lines pass through them according to the chart. To find the desired reflex point on the feet, picture the part of the foot and follow the line to guide you to the organ involved.

    Reflex or Pressure Points in the Palm 9

    The palm of the right hand is positive and stimulates energy, which has a strengthening effect. The
    palm of the left hand is negative and has a sedating, soothing and cleaning effect. The use of both
    hands will give you the combined effect of both energies.

     

    The backs of the hands have the opposite electrical energy from the palms. The back of the right hand
    will be negative and the back of the left hand will be positive.

    Chakras to Reflexology 11

    Chakras are psychic electrical energy centers which are released by the endocrine glands and the nerve
    centers in the body. The word “Chakra” comes from the Sanskrit language and means a revolving wheel or vortex of energy. These spiraling vortexes of life energy consist of two electrical currents which rise up
    through each leg and criss-cross each other up through the body. Where these currents cross, the seven
    major Charkras are found. This energy flows from each Chakra through the body and circles back along the electrical pathways of the meridians. Our Chakras are a reflection of our consciousness. Vitalizing these energy centers will bring about radiant well-being and heightened awareness.

    Reflex Points throughout the Body 12

    The reflex points are energy junctions that relay and reinforce energy along meridian lines of the
    body, passing energy toward the organs and the nervous system. Electrical current passes most
    readily along the body’s meridian lines, thus there are special electrical properties at the reflex points
    and along the meridians that are different from the surrounding tissues.
    Unlike the reflexes in the hands and feet, body reflexes do not always follow a straight meridian line.
    There are several reflex points located in certain areas of the body that will stimulate renewed life to
    more than one functioning area. You will see reflex points scattered over various parts of the body.

    Reflex Points in the Head 13

    On the very center of the top of the head are the reflexes to the reproductive organs. Down toward the forehead is the reflex to the stomach; under the nose are the reflexes to the pineal and pituitary, then the spleen and the pancreas reflexes. Straight down from these reflexes are the gonad reflexes on the chin.

    This seems to be the center meridian (or zone) line that runs through the body.

    One way to massage these reflexes is to use the center finger, which is called the “fire finger” because it sends out energy more strongly than the other fingers. Do not rub the skin, but rather, rub the bone under the skin very gently.

    On the back of the head there are many reflexes indicated–areas that are helpful in understanding the science of Reflexology.

    There are three methods of stimulation for the head:

    (1) Grab handfuls of hail and pull. This stimulates not only the hair but also the reflexes to the whole body.

    (2) Close the fists very loosely and swing them loosely from the wrists as if they were on hinges. Very gently, use the fists to tap the top of the head not more than 30 seconds. This stimulating is enough to bring life to every organ and gland in the body.

    (3) Use a wire brush to tap the head gently all over. This is an excellent reflex stimulator and also stimulates the hair follicles to promote new hair growth.

    Reflex Points in the Ears 14

    These charts reflect the auricular points (those pertaining to the external ear). As with the feet
    and the hands, the ears also reflect body parts as well as symptoms–both physical and emotional..
    The points can be useful in accessing the body’s healing energy connections through the ears.
    Auricular therapy is done by finding and stimulating acupuncture points in the ear electrically, then by
    taping tiny seeds on combinations of more than 136 points that have been identified in each ear.

REFLEXOLOGY

DEFINITION OF REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is the art of reprogramming the atoms, cells, and electrons of the body to their original state through the triggering of signal points on the foot or hand. It is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all the glands, organs and parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas. Reflexology includes, but is not limited to relieving stress and tension, improving blood supply, promoting the unblocking of nerve impulses, and helping nature achieve homeo stasis.

 

The feet have a fundamental relationship to the body. Signal points on the feet provide a link of communication to the major organs, muscles, and the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, elimination, reproductive and skeletal systems.

 

Reflexology is used to manage energy savings in the body, reduce stress, and build a greater body awareness. It combats the effects of improper diet and environmental pollutants, and aligns the physical, mental and emotional energies. Reflexology is a very specific technique of applying pressure to these reflexes to bring about the desired results.

 

REFLEXOLOGY RELAXES TENSION

Since approximately 75% of today’s diseases are attributable to stress and tension, various body systems are affected in different ways and to varying degrees. One person may exhibit cardiovascular problems, another gastrointestinal upset, anorexia, palpitations, sweating, headaches, – to mention but a few of the myriad of bodily reactions to stress. This stress or tension could be described as a tourniquet around the body’s system, a tightening that can lead to serious consequences.

 

REFLEXOLOGY IMPROVES NERVE AND BLOOD SUPPLY

In order to keep the body at a normal balance, it is imperative that the blood and nerve supply to every organ and gland be at a maximum. Of course, the organs and glands contribute to the overall well-being of the body, each making contributions to maintaining an efficient, full operating mechanism, but all receive their instructions from the most intricate of all networks, the nerves.

 

These cord-like structures, comprised of a collection of nerve fibers, convey impulses between a part of the central nervous system and other regions of the body. They are the wiring system of the house called the human body. As with any complex wiring system, a short circuit can mean trouble.

 

A short circuit is often caused by tension putting pressure on a vital nerve plexus or even a single nerve structure supplying a vital organ. As tension is eased, pressure on the nerves and vessels is relaxed, thus improving the flow of blood and its oxygen-rich nutrients to all parts of the body.

 

REFLEXOLOGY HELPS NATURE ACHIEVE HOMEOSTASIS (Normal, Balance)

Overactive glands or organs can be helped to return to normal. Conversely, if an organ or a gland is under active Reflexology can help return it to its normally functioning level.

 

It is important to note here that the normalization action of Reflexology is never one of opposite extremes. In other words, once homeostasis or a normal condition is achieved, it cannot be unbalanced by working the area too much. Overworking can cause some minor reactions such as diarrhea or perhaps some nasal mucous being secreted (runny nose).  These reactions though, are cleansing poisons from the body. Succinctly, Reflexology cannot harm a system–it simply brings it back into balance.
