PLANTAR REFLEXOLOGY

Even the smallest footprints leave a mark in this world.?(Anonymous)

Anyone will massaging his feet before going to sleep ("Veda" Indian) will not be seized by any disease

let's say in Iridology for the eyes, mirror of the soul but also of the body. Words by Dr. Robert Samilson, MD, fourth president of the "American Orthopedic Foot Society" ("Todays Health", October 1973).
The feet are Feet really seem to be the mirror of the body, similarly as the masterpieces of structural engineering, or rather of biomechanics, exquisitely and beautifully designed, in perfect coordination with many muscles. In a very small space they include 26 bones, 33 joints, 114 ligaments, 20 muscles and an intricate network of nerves and blood vessels. Wonderful structures that fully reflect our state of health.
The fact that the sole of the foot, like eyes and skin, communicate directly with the central nervous system (it is the basic element of the postural system) makes us realize that complex system of relationships that entertains with the most disparate other parts of the body. Here's how targeted reflexology massages can even help our body get rid of the toxins accumulated in some parts of it. The reflexology massage is based on pressures in specific parts of the foot that result to have correspondences with each organ of the body, and thereby determining states of reactivation and improvement of the relative physiological functions.
Plantar reflexology acts on the whole organism, stimulating all the positive forces, influencing the different organs and body systems: circulatory, nervous, digestive, etc. normalizing and balancing their functioning It uses the innate capacity for self-healing, a characteristic that nature has provided us and which allows us to recover the optimal state of well-being. Each reflex is an involuntary response to a stimulus, so that, with a pressure or a blow, it can act at great distance on organs and muscles through the nervous circuits and through the micro electric currents that travel all over our body. .
Our cells have the property of excitability, that is, they respond to the stimuli that reach them. However, Plantar Reflexology acts indirectly on our cells, exercising its function through the pressures that the operator, with his own hands, applies to precise areas of the feet, thus activating both our nerve centers and our energy channels.
Many are the microsystems able to reflect all the organs, structures and systems of the body, in addition to that of the foot we find that of the ear (auriculotherapy), the body itself (Chinese acupuncture), the eye (iridology), the tongue , and others.
The feet connect us (north-south axis) with Mother Earth, with the feminine energy that is the donor, and helps her to feed herself. This is why the five lines of the foot must always be fluid: for these to bring the energy of the Earth to the energy centers. If this energy flows, there is no reason to worry. Reflexology aims to make us flow with life. Sometimes our body is in difficulty, because the flow of energy proves to be insufficient, is what we call illness, which is the process of discharge that the body uses to regain balance, but which on many occasions is found instead it is blocked both in our emotional and in the physical part. Reflexology helps the body to reconnect with its innate forces.

It is a very simple method because we know that to work on the body we need an important knowledge of both the anatomy and the physiology of the body, and a lot of experience.
Instead, to work at the level of the feet, just know the maps, which parts reflect, and how they project in the totality, of course, always taking the usual precautions of obligation

LYMPHODRAINAGE

The skin plays a fundamental role in organic homeostasis and in the progression of the individual to the environment. From a strictly physiological point of view, and if I were tweets the outer protective layer of the organism, a permeable barrier that prevents the entry of microorganisms and toxic substances and retains water and electrolytes and that opposes to environmental changes, filtering them. The skin also represents the Premium functional structure in mind in the processes of thermoregulation and the is implicated in a wide range of endocrine, immune, and nervous phenomena, ontologically constituting the primary sense organ and perhaps the most important in the development of a proper relationship with the environment. From the heart's point of view a mental door the skin represents the fundamental supervision for the psychological structuring of the individual, and for the expression of emotions and consequently it constitutes a new privileged for the realization of relations with the social environment as well as that physique the psyche exerts more influence on the skin that sounds other organ according to the studies of Dr. Joseph Klauder. The correlations between neurobehavioral factors and octane functions are anatomically represented by the rich presence of cerebrospinal and vegetative nerve fibers on the skin and are based on a common embryological derivation. The skin and the nervous system in fact develop the same germinative sheet, derma bed so that the skin could be defined as the inverted surface of the nervous system.For these reasons the skin was considered elongated the biological soil most suitable to the genesis and development of the illness ex emotion or the psychosomatic organ par excellence. So the father treatment of both the elimination of toxins in the organic field and relaxation is just a lymphatic drainage done with the Vodder method that has demonstrated for years and years its effectiveness.

Lymphatic drainage, or "manual lymphatic drainage" (DLM) is a particular type of massage performed in the areas of the body with an excessive reduction of lymphatic circulation and a stagnation of liquid. The first formalization of the technique, which still survives today with this name, was introduced in 1936 by Dr. Emil Vodder with his wife, Dr. Estrid Vodder, on some early insights by Alexander von Winiwarter.

1) Methods and effects
During most of a DLM session, massage is performed from the periphery to the internal organs (centripetal), to aid the draining effect of the dovetail valves in the lymphatic vessels. There are two classic methods of lymphatic drainage massage, the first formalized by Emil Vodder, the second by Albert Leduc. The two methods agree on the most important points, namely:

Start the massage starting from the proximal area, ie the various lymph node stations of the trunk, and then concentrate the rest of the session on the distal areas, ie the limbs;
The pressure must be adjusted so as not to cause redness or pain.

 

The differences are found in the type of movements that the therapist must perform. The Vodder method is based on four movements:

firm circles, obtained by a circular push movement of the fingers flattened on the skin. Used mainly for the face, neck and lymph nodes. ? pump touch, which only uses the palm of the hand. Preferred for the curved parts of legs, braces and hips.
dispensing movements e
rotary touches, used for chest, belly and back. They are made with the whole hand, the wrist rotates from the outside to the inside while the thumb follows the lymphatic flow.
According to Leduc, on the other hand, the treatment must be performed only through two manipulations, depending on the condition to be treated: "the recall maneuver and the resorption maneuver". The first consists of manipulations to be performed downstream of the area of ​​interest to aid the physiological drainage of stagnant liquids in the vessels, while the second acts on the retention areas, manipulating the tissue to promote the reabsorption of fluids in the superficial lymphatic vessels. Usually the treatment can continue even after the session, including the use of elastic bands that prevent stagnation, especially in the lower limbs.

Among the benefits of treatment, in addition to the sensation of muscle heat, useful to release accumulated tensions, there is the sensation of lightness, since the muscles work with less load of liquid. [2] 2 Areas of interest From the lower limbs, the main collection center is the Pecquet cistern, at the level of the first two lumbar vertebrae, before moving to the terminus via the main lymphatic trunks. From the upper limbs the lymph is collected in the terminus more or less directly, passing through various lymph node stations scattered along the path, of which the most important are those axillary.
