Your feet are in good hands!
Bridge to Wellness offers Foot Reflexology from Jan
King. You can be sure that your feet will be in good hands!
Reflexology applies pressure points on the feet that correspond to the
individual parts of the body. It aims to restore balance and harmony by increasing the circulation to the
internal organs and glands through the feet. By working on the reflexes homeostasis can be achieved by
un-blocking energy that stagnates in the feet.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy, and works on the feet to help heal
the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.
How can reflexology help
Reflexology can be used to help restore and
maintain the body’s natural equilibrium. This gentle therapy encourages the body to work naturally to restore its

Reflexology does not claim to cure, diagnose or
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may bring relief from a wide range of
acute and chronic conditions. After you have completed a course of reflexology treatment for a specific condition,
many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and
Research has shown the specific techniques of
reflexology to be effective and beneficial in many ways. A survey of 170 reflexology studies from 21 countries
shows that reflexology is effective, impacting a variety of physical and psychological concerns.
Creates relaxation: From the
moment the reflexologist's hands start their work, the relaxation begins as shown in research using EEG brain
activity. All together, 24 studies demonstrate reflexology's relaxation effects.
Reduces pain: Pain reduction
following reflexology work is documented in 27 studies including research showing impact on individuals of all ages
and health states
Ameliorates health concerns:
Research shows that reflexology work helps indiviuals of all ages with some 78 health concerns ranging from
aggressive behavior Êin children to urinary concerns of the elderly.
Improves blood flow: Separate
studies show that reflexology work increases blood flow to the feet, brain, kidneys and intestines.
Aids post-operative recovery:
Reflexology work aids recovery after surgery as shown by several studies, reducing pain and lessening the use of
post operative analgesics.
Impact on physiological measures (e. g. blood pressure and cholesterol; measurements
by ECG, EEG, and fMRI)
Enhances medical care:
Reflexology helps where nothing else can for many: phantom limb pain sufferers, neuropathy patients, and
hemodialysis patients to name a few.
Benefits mental health: Research demonstrates that
reflexology can reduce depression (11 studies) and anxiety (9 studies).
Complements cancer care: Pain,
nausea, vomiting, and/or anxiety eased for chemotherapy patients following reflexology work as shown by16 studies
fom 7 countries.
Eases pregnancy, delivery and post-partum effects: Women who
received reflexology experienced shorter labor times and used less analgesia. In addition, reflexology showed a
positive impact on postpartum depression, anxiety, urination and bowel movements.
In general terms, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of
stress. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to
interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body's equilibrium.
Reflexology is a complement to standard medical
care. It should not be construed as medical advice. It should not be a replacement to medical help. Please use it
wisely. We care about your safety.
