When there is a problem, our life energy becomes congested and interferes with normal body functioning as well as emotional well-being. Congestion may be the result of disease, trauma, or physical or emotional stress. It may be a recent occurrence but equally it can be something that happened some time ago and the memory of it has been stored in the tissues.
Even when a problem has seemingly been dealt with, the energy associated with the area may still be disturbed; so the original problem continues to manifest as symptoms, perhaps different to the original ones. Reflexology, like Polarity Therapy, works to re-establish the free flow of energy. Once this happens, the body's natural ability to heal is stimulated, health restored and balance maintained.
