Changing the polarity (electrical charge) of nerve fiber endings, so as to restore balance in the autonomic nervous system (usually moving from sympathetic to parasympathetic), will reduce the percentage of nervous tissue and increase the availability of vascular elements within the tissue.
This is important to consider since we know, from research completed in Spain under Dr. Jesus Manzares’ supervision, that sensitive, congested reflex points contain more nerve fibers than healthy ones.
With a focus on balancing the body’s polarity we have the possibility of creating a different internal environment.
Less nervous tissue – less inflammation.
Less inflammation – less Substance P in the tissue.
Less Substance P – less pain.
Less pain – more blood flow.
More blood flow – increased delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to the cells and improved removal of waste products.
In plain English – restore balance in the energy body and we remove a cascade of obstacles preventing our body from doing what it was designed to do.
Reflexology is such an effective and enjoyable way to balance and restore homeostasis in the body. The physical action of reflexing is also very effective at breaking down Substance P in the nerve fibers.
Sometimes I like to think it’s not any more complicated than that. Just reflex my own feet for a few minutes daily and receive an hour session from a professional on a regular basis. It’s pretty simple to give my body the support it needs – and deserves.
