Reflexology Studies | General Info

Reflexology is a method for diagnosing and treating ailments by applying pressure to parts of the foot and is based on the body’s natural healing powers.
Reflexology uses the patient’s feet as an emotional, mental a physical map of the body.

According to this method, the foot reflects all of a person’s abilities, difficulties, endurance under stress, state of health, chronic weaknesses and tendencies of the body’s various organs. Information is obtained from signs on the feet, such as birthmarks, cracks, lines, dry patches and skin color and temperature. These signs are indications for the reflexologist regarding the patient’s condition and are used for customizing treatment.

During the reflexologist’s examination of the patient’s feet, problems are detected and suggestions raised as to the cause of energy blockages. Using guided massage and pressure on specific points along the length and width the patient’s feet, the reflexologist identifies problematic points in the patient’s body and psyche. Therapy is based on various intensities of pressure on specific points on the patient’s feet, where each point affects a different part of the body or the brain and elicits a response. Reflexology can revitalize and strengthen the internal organs, the release and cleansing of waste and toxins from the body, strengthen and improve the flexibility of the skeleton and muscles, relieve stress and promote faster healing.

Today reflexology is recognized by the medical establishment as a means for treating many chronic conditions such as otitis, joint pain, digestive problems, infertility and stress. At Shelem College reflexology is taught based on the “fetal principle” (first published by Eldad Nakar in his book, Reflexholism), offering students a broader and deeper understanding of holistic concepts.
