Eighty percent of Americans suffer from back pain at some point in their lives, and spend $50 billion each year on low back pain.
Back Pain is the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work. Back pain is the second most common neurological ailment in the United States — only headaches are more common.
Reflexology is a method of activating the healing powers of the body. It is both old and new. From Ancient texts, illustrations and artifacts, we know that the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians and Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health.
Today many of these same techniques have been developed into a modern scientific method called Reflexology. What joins the ancients with the moderns is the long established principle that there are energy zones that run throughout the body and reflex areas in the feet that correspond to all the major organs, glands and body parts.
Modern Reflexology is both a science and an art. As a science it requires careful study, faithful practice, a sound knowledge of the techniques and skill. As one of the healing arts, Reflexology yields the best results when the Reflexologist works with the European Reflexology Method combined with dedication, patience, focused attention and TLC (tender loving care).
The feet are a perfect microcosm or mini-map of the whole body. All the organs, glands and body parts represented in the foot are laid out in the same arrangement as in the body. Even the inside curve of the foot corresponds to the natural curves in the spine.
Since the 1980’s, Lauren Slade has made observations through her Reflexology clinical experience that have shown clients respond to different forms of reflex stimulus, which can alleviate severe and disabling pain associated with low back pain.
Notice anything different about the illustration to the left? Look carefully… yes you will see the spine and the pelvis on the outer side of the foot – in zone 5. These lateral reflexes are not mentioned at all during basic Reflexology workshops. I have found them however, to be my secret weapon in the fight against back problems
Pelvic imbalance can be detected on the lateral reflexes of the feet as shown in the above illustration.
You will find these reflexes to be very accurate guides in determining which side of the pelvis is out of balance, while at the same time providing a vital area to be treated in combination with the disturbed spinal reflexes
In this “Ending Back Pain with Reflexology” Lauren will share these and many more new ways of working the spinal reflexes, as well as many surprising unknown reflex points that she has used to great effect over the years to help and alleviate back pain.
These pelvic spinal nerves reflex area, I have found very effective in working to alleviate Multiple Sclerosis symptoms, and diseases of the nervous system.
<<<NOTE SPINAL NERVES ALSO IN ZONE 5
Piriformis Muscle Syndrome (PmS) is an irritation of the sciatic nerve by the piriformis muscle. PmS Therapy is a specific reflexology system that targets this muscle. It can be done alone, but works best in conjunction with a comprehensive European Reflexology regime.
In “Ending Back Pain” Lauren will share her 30 second PmS Reflexology adjustment that has astonished and surprised hundreds of her Reflexology students (and clients) over the years with it’s amazing fast and effective results.
This is where European Reflexology comes into its own, because the session length can be adjusted to work just the necessary reflexes, and a complete or full session is not required, every time. However, this mini session must be considered as a follow-up session after at least 2 full sessions have been completed.
If you charge say $1 per minute – per session (assuming the session is 60 minutes long), a treatment lasting only 10 minutes will cost the client just $10. This makes it affordable for your client to return several times, and for you the practitioner to monitor the client and achieve excellent results, thereby building your reputation and practice.
