Reflexology soothes you into a state of deep rest and relaxation. It works similarly to hypnosis where you enter a receptive place, allowing for healing.
There are thousands of nerves in these areas — 15,000 nerves in your feet alone! That’s why the effects of reflexology are so calming and soothing.
Using your thumb or index finger, simply press for 5 seconds on each of the following areas indicated above.
• The hypothalamus area of your brain (outside of big toe) controls appetite and thirst.
• The solar plexus/diaphragm (under ball of foot) reduces stress.
• The adrenal glands (near inner edge of foot at center sole) help to maintain your energy levels to burn off calories.
• The colon and intestines of the digestive system (near bottom of foot at center sole) are stimulated to promote elimination and relieve bloating.
