History of Foot Massage
Foot massage holds great importance in many cultures. In Indian tradition, foot massage has played an integral part of defining the dynamics of relationships for thousands of years, while in ancient Egypt, drawings on the burial site of pharaohs are believed to show reflexology points.
This particular type of massage also has significance in Native American culture, where it is understood to treat a variety of ailments.
Balance and Harmony
Reflexology cause the muscles to relax, physical tension to be released and the nervous system to function normally. This may have a beneficial effect on all the other systems of the body and the way in which they function (circulatory, hormonal, respiratory, lymphatic), overall wellness, and improved mental health.
Most importantly, reflexology may re-energise someone suffering from stress, as it helps to remove blockages in the energy flowing around the body, thus improving the client’s own energy levels. The client may feel uplifted and calmer.
Tranquility and Relaxation
Massaging the feet can alleviate anxiety and bring about a deep state of relaxation. One important point that is situated on both feet is the solar plexus reflex. The solar plexus is sort of a little warehouse where all your stress is stored. When the solar plexus point is pressed on, stress is released and the body is renewed.
Energy and Rejuvenation
Like most forms of traditional health care, the science of Tibetan medicine has a great deal to say about a person’s energy, focus and drive. The topics of how to increase this energy, how to rejuvenate a person harmed by illness or poor lifestyle choices, and how to extend the energetic capacity of a person into old age are all addressed in great detail.
At Siddhi Energetics, we have sought out some of the most potent herbal tonics from the Tibetan pharmacopoeia and brought them to the modern West, where we are in deep need of these remedies.
