Eunice Ingham's, who was often referred to as the "Mother of Reflexology", famous saying "Circulation is life, stagnation is death", can be proven by cutting off the blood supply even to the smallest part of the body. By doing this, very soon, a variety of aches and pains start to occur and the skin color starts changing. If the blockage continues, the affected part will eventually die. We also know that our hands and feet respond to cold conditions by starting to ache and this is because the cold has the effect of reducing the blood supply. Our organs and glands require a sufficient rich supply of blood to function properly.
Reflexology causes the body to relax allowing the circulatory system to do what it is designed to do and that is to keep the body working as a harmonious unit. In doing this, the body's own natural healing abilities will be able to work as needed.

***Important Update***NSARP (Nova Scotia Assoc. of Reflexology Therapist) has provided the NSTU with some information of the benefits of Reflexology therapy. We are asking all teachers, who have enjoyed this holistic therapy, to email the NSTU stating that they find the use of Reflexology very beneficial and would like to see it included in their core benefits in their next contract. Please email Joan Ling, Executive Director, NSTU at email@example.com.
This is a great step forward for Reflexology Therapists.

Do you suffer from Allergies, Environmental Issues, Migraines, Back Pain, Hormonal Imbalance "Hot Flashes", Insomnia, Stress, Poor Circulation in Hands and Feet (from Arthritis/Diabetes)? These are just a few of the symptoms Reflexology may help to relieve.
80% to 90 % of all illnesses are caused by stress. These therapies focus on a person's health by treating the whole body rather than the disease. They build on the body's own natural ability to heal itself.

HOLISTIC HEALTH BENEFITS:
My belief is that good health starts from within. Our body's nerves convey impulses from the Central Nervous System to other parts of the body. This communication enables the function of the organs and the various parts of the body to work together keeping your body systems in balance with one another. Any imbalance can cause illness or pain.
Tension for an example, can put pressure on various nerves causing messages to the organs to be impaired. This in turn often means that the organ will not function as it should. An example of this is the Tension Headache. Tension has the effect of restricing blood flow. A relaxed body facilitates a sufficiently rich supply of blood to the organs and glands enabling them to function in a more harmonious state. If they do not receive this rich supply of blood, they malfunction and lose their balancing qualities.
Did You Know - that Reiki and Reflexology are mentioned in the "Complementary Therapies - A Guide for People with Cancer"? This guide is put out by the Canadian Cancer Society. As stated in the brochure, scientific evidence, at this time, has not proven that any of these therapies is an effective treatment for cancer. They are included because there is some proof that they may be helpful as complementary therapies to conventional cancer treatment. Complementary therapies aim to improve the overall well-being and support the link between the mind, body and spirit and build on our body's own ability to heal. They help with nausea, pain, insomnia, and stress.
