Reflexology can be used to provide fast and effective relief
from pain. Pain is defined as 'an unpleasant sensory and emotional
experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage'. It
includes any abnormal feeling from aching, burning, shooting, numbness,
How does Nerve
Reflexology uses precise points on the bones of the feet rather than
on the soft-tissues. The reflexologist targets only those areas which
are involved in the individual's condition.
Nerve Reflexology is an advanced manual treatment
method for functional disorders in the musculo-skeletal (movement) and
visceral (organs) system . The treatment focuses on the changes in the
peripheral nervous system, the central nervous system, and autonomic nervous
system as a cause or as a consequence of tissue damage or potential tissue
damage in the body.
The different techniques are all focused on interfering in the
different parts of the nervous system that are involved in the individual's
pain. These parts can be divided into four stages; changes in peripheral,
central, autonomic nervous system, and psycho-emotional components.
In all these stages the reflexologist can interfere using nerve
reflex points. These nerve reflex points can be followed by other manual
techniques interfering in the local musculo-skeletal or visceral dysfunctions.
Reflexology can be highly effective in treating the following:
Chronic low back
Hip and knee problems
and arm pain, including frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, and carpel tunnel
Pain from degenerative
diseases, such as cancer and Parkinsons disease
In most cases,
improvements are evident after just one treatment.
How is it different
from classical Reflexology?
The pressure is given with the outside side of the top of the thumb
to small parts on the bones of the foot. If the corresponding nerve is
overloaded, the nerve reflex point will be painful. The reflexologist
holds the point, without moving until the pain decreases. The nerve reflex
points can be combined with classic zone therapy. You can first treat
the nerve of the affected structure by pressing the nerve reflex points
and then treat the structure by zone therapy.
