In Touch With Your Sole

If you're on your feet all day at work, you can probably imagine that a foot massage can be one of life's true luxuries. Those who have had the pleasure of this indulgence experience instant relaxation as their aching feet are kneaded. A foot massage provides a feeling of released tension and ease to a tired person. Ever wonder why a foot massage is such a good feeling? Most people aren't aware that a typical foot massage is an important part of what is known as reflexology.

Reflexology is the practice of stimulating the hands, feet and ears as a form of therapy. Using thumb, finger and hand techniques, professional reflexologists apply pressure to specific areas of the hands, feet and ears to alleviate common ailments such as headaches, back pain, sinus colds and stress. "Not only is reflexology an enjoyable experience for most clients, it's also a healthy, drug-free way of helping the body heal itself," states Richmond resident Virgininia E. Sevilla, a certified reflexologist. The theory behind reflexology is that each of the body's organs and glands are "linked" to corresponding areas of the hands and feet. The application of pressure to the hands, feet or ears relaxes muscles and improves blood circulation. Energy is restored to the body and ultimately reflexology improves its overall condition.

Reflexology is an aid to the healing process, and is also considered preventative care that contributes to good health and strengthens the body's immune system. Virgininia adds that: "According to the Reflexology Association of Canada, reflexology is a natural healing art that relieves tension, improves circulation, and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body."

Anyone can learn how to practice reflexology on themselves or on others. "The Association has an approved certification course that can be taught to anyone that wants to learn proper reflexology techniques," explains Virginnia, who is a certified reflexology teacher who gives the course in Richmond. "The course is110 hours long, which involves a combination of in-class instruction and practical application. Most of my students who have taken the course practice reflexology on their family members." Those interested in taking a reflexology course are encouraged to contact the Reflexology Association of Canada  for names of teachers in their area.
