Nutrition and Diet for reflexologists
Reflexology is an ancient healing therapy derived from oriental philosophy. It focuses on stimulating “reflex points” on the feet to maintain good health. Practitioners believe that by applying pressure to the reflex points it is possible to treat a wide range of disorders.
Reflexology is based on the premise that energy channels run throughout the body. The efficacy of the therapy is believed to be the result of stimulation of this energy flow. It accepts that the body is a dynamic energy system that is constantly changing.
As an holistic therapy, reflexology treats the whole person, the aim is to restore the individual into a state of balance, homeostasis.
Precision reflexology refers to a form of reflexology that is unique to this school. It involves a technique called “linking”. This confirms the precise nature of the treatment when a response is felt, by both the client and the worker, when the correct reflex is held. “Linking” uses both hands to join two relevant points thus increasing the power and the holistic nature of the treatment.
This technique incorporates the oriental origins of reflexology by responding to each client’s subtle energy. It is non-invasive, being both gentle and effective. The practitioner connects to the subtle energy of the client using a light touch therefore the treatment has a gentle application whilst ,at the same time, being very powerful and effective.
Prue Miskin developed this system over several years and it continues to be a central element of the tuition at the precision school.
