Starting Points of Holistic Reflexology.

The body is always mirroring itself. Meaning that, what effects of stimulation that can be applied and felt in one part of the body, can be affected in another part of the body. This is an essential knowledge foundation of Naturopathy and Holism in healing. Many of our internal health issues are the result of blocked pressure points and hampered down energy. Throughout the lands of Asia, India, Africa, and the Middle East; they knew of the importance of applying pressure on various meridian zones on the body to bring about a healing and keep essential energy zones flowing.

When we think of trying to get an understanding of what Reflexology is, think about it like the fact that the body is mapped out in zones and can foreshadow different imbalances and disturbances that might not always be apparent; always showing imbalances on the subtle levels. But intuition plays a part in this very practical and healing art. Any disturbance in one part of the body will be manifested in another part as well. Consider the fact that your body has pathways and channels that allow for the circulation and flow of healing.

But before the practitioner can have an impact in the area of healing, the practitioner has to know what to look out for and look at first. Looking out for contradictory signs on opposite sides of the body is the first starting point in Holistic Reflexology. For example, giving focus and treatment to the nose bridge area has a starting target point healing property that can bring healing and relief to the vertebral spine, bring pin relief to sore muscles and various organ functions.  This goes back to the mirroring of the body aspect that we started out with at the beginning.  Remember, as stated before previously, Reflexology can target imbalances related to congestive heart failure, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, headaches and etc.  And it is with headaches that we will give a prime example of how Reflexology can be of great benefit.


To treat headaches, the Holistic Practitioner applies pressure to the iliac crest of the front sternum. Another area of treatment is on applying pressure to the outer line of the thumb exterior. Those zones affect nerves that connect to the shoulder muscles. From the Reflexologist point of view, this would be the first line of defense in addressing headaches and other nearby inflammation related pain in the upper surrounding region. Likewise, addressing the inside of the nose region corresponds to treating reproductive organs and from there they influence respiration, digestion, pain relief and organ functions.

These are just a few examples of how Reflexology and other mirroring techniques are Holistic in nature. Beyond this, it also shows how body manipulation and targeted touch with pressure can bring about some type of healing for the whole body. The key however, is to make sure that you find the right practitioner that can assist you in starting the healing process while at the same time educating you on the main pressure points and channels on the body that relate to holistic reflexology.
