Reflexology : Reflexology Pressure Points

Reflexology : Reflexology Pressure Points


Hello, my name is Darya McNolty. I’m a reflexologist
and a massage therapist, here in Rutland, Vermont and today, I’m going to be showing
you how to apply proper pressure points while giving reflexology. The way that the foot
is laid out, the body is broken up into ten meridians. So, there are lines that are going
to; visible lines that run through the body and each area is going to represent a different
part of the body. So, as I’m working, I know that this area of Tracy’s body is also going
to run all the way up her entire line. So, I know that I’m working her intestines. I
know that I’m working her heart if I’m working in this particular area. So, Tracy’s got some
sensitivity, here, in this region, and she was asking me about, you know, what does that
represent? In this particular area is your solar plexus as well as it’s also lymph drainage.
So, it could be, between, maybe allergies, you’ve been having congestion and a sinus
infection. You can feel when there is an area of concern or congestion. I will feel a hardness
or like a knot that you would feel, you know, in your back or something, and I will work
that area gently. Right here in this area is like a button that you can push that will
help with lymph drainage, and you just have to knead it. Sometimes, it’s tender when you
first work it, and when you push on it a lot of times, there is resistance. So, I just
gently have to work it through, and what you do, is you start by pushing directly in the
center, and then you work your way around. So, that you gently moving out the toxins,
and you’re not, and then you go back and you check again to make sure that is; to see if
it’s still tender, okay, then I don’t want to be working that center spot, and then I’ll
work around in a circle, and then test it again. And you keep doing this until eventually
it doesn’t hurt as much and then you know you’ve cleansed that area. You’ve stimulated
neural impulse to your lymph system and your lymph nodes and hopefully we’re going to get
toxin drainage. So, I’m thinking that you’re not pulling enough breath in. You’re not being
able to get enough breath and then as well, you’ve got a lot of toxins in your body from
the sinus infection and that those things have built up, here, in your feet and are
causing this discomfort and congestion, a lot of tension. And one more thing, always
remember exercise and healthy eating will give you the optimal health for your body.

  1. I am not saying she is wrong (the therapist) But not necessarily, all of the problems of the body can be solved only with this method. and not necessarily, this method can solve all problems. Body is much more complicated than she assumes 🙂 It is very naive and childish to assume that this method will solve all problems, in all cases and in all people.

  2. Reflexology isn't something that should replace regular medical care, but it can help alleviate certain ailments to some degree. The power of touch is really not something you can measure, but it is medical fact that all nerves in your body run to your feet. It is possible that they end in the same general areas of everyone's feet. Anyone who says this is all you need to fix ailments has smoked their breakfast a few too many times. 🙂 Still feels really, really good.

  3. It boggles the mind (and outrages the sensibilities) that in this day and age, after over 150 years of laborious, careful accumulation of evidence in the systematic study of human physiology and neuroanatomy, that there are still people who believe this utter nonsense. This sadly deluded woman may as well be living in the 14th century considering that her mode of thought is typical of that period. Reflexology is as fanciful as the four humors, or miasmas, or phrenology. The best you can say abo

  4. The best you can say about what this woman does is that although it has absolutely no basis in known body function, she can't actually harm anybody what she does, and you get a nice foot massage out of it. (I love foot massages.) Unless a client is foolish enough to go to her instead of a doctor, someone who actually KNOWS things.

  5. This stuff works. If I can choke myself with my hands, its proof we can control our bodies through pressure. So who is anyone to say other areas of pressure can't control things?
