What are we talking about ?

Foot reflexology is a natural, manual technique that frees the body's self-regulating faculties.

It is based on the following principle :
The foot is a miniature representation of the human body. Each reflex zone corresponds to an organ, gland or body part. Rhythmic pressure applied to these reflex zones helps to localize tensions and restore balance in the corresponding parts of the body.

History of reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient practice that dates back several thousand years. Although it gained popularity in its current form during the 20th century, its roots can be traced to ancient civilizations in China, Egypt, and India.

Here is a brief history of reflexology :

  1. Ancient China: The earliest forms of reflexology can be traced back to ancient China, where it was believed that applying pressure to certain points on the feet and hands could stimulate the body's vital energy (known as "chi" or "qi"). This technique was known as "Tuina."

  2. Ancient Egypt: Inscriptions on Egyptian tombs dating back to around 2500 BC depict murals showing therapists massaging the feet and hands of their patients. Egyptians also used this technique to treat various ailments.

  3. Ancient India: Ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine also included foot massage practices. They believed that the feet served as a map of the body, and by applying appropriate pressure to specific areas, one could alleviate health issues.

  4. Modern Development: The modern form of reflexology as we know it today was developed in the early 20th century. William H. Fitzgerald, an American physician, is often credited with popularizing reflexology in the West. He introduced the theory that the body is divided into ten longitudinal zones, with reflexology points corresponding to each zone on the hands and feet. Reflexology was also influenced by the work of Eunice Ingham, a nurse and physiotherapist who mapped reflexology points on the feet and hands, contributing to the development of the modern practice.

  5. Global Expansion: Reflexology spread worldwide during the 20th century, becoming a popular practice for relaxation and stress relief. Many professional associations were established to set training and practice standards, and reflexology is now practiced in many countries.

 

Today, reflexology is used to promote relaxation, alleviate pain, stimulate blood circulation, and balance energy in the body. It is often used as a complement to conventional medicine to enhance overall well-being.

History of Auricular therapy

This method originates from the ancient cultures of Asian-Indians, Chinese, Egyptians and Amerindians. Auricular therapy is the art of relieving pain by removing earwax and debris from the ear canal.

How is it done ?

The candle is a hollow cone made of pure beeswax and unbleached cotton. The tapered end is placed in the ear at a 45-degree angle, facing the shoulder. The other end is lit to produce smoke.

This smoke swirls in the candle, creating a vortex or slight vacuum. The smoke travels into the ear canal, gently drawing the wax upwards and depositing it in the empty candle.

 

Thousands of people have bene-fited from auricular therapy.

One person says, "I don't know exactly how it works, but it's worked really well for me!"
