the science of reflexology?

i promise i’m trying not to ease-drop in on anyone’s conversation but the young lady at the table next to me is verbally puking on the young man at her table concerning the science of reflexology. poor guy can’t get a word in edge-wise even if he wanted to. of course, i don’t think he really has a desire to say anything because he presently looks like a ‘deer caught in headlights.” anyhow i was tempted to break in when she announced that her reflexologist had told her that she was probably going to need a heart transplant in the next 10 years. i have decided to place my headphones on so that i am no longer tempted. i’m all for alternative medicine but telling someone to prepare for a heart transplant because of what you sensed while messaging his/her feet? i can’t go there.

  1. Reflexology in a real sense is not just foot massage though. Kinetic reflexology is meant as a diagnositic tool. It is a facinating thing to see how it works.


    I am not a reflexologist. But when I signed up to go with a friend I expected a nice foot massage. But it is a whole body thing. More like an interactive body massage. The push on pressure points and have you push against them to “measure” your muslcle strength. I had a bladder infection when I went and my reflexologist told me I need to see a dr for it (i had already been to the dr). Anyway. It falls more in the line of chiropractics than spa services. There are spas who do foot reflexology which is just a reall great massage. The whole reason for my post is, I had no idea there was something other than a spa service. I don’t see one often, but have been a handful of times and I am quite amazed at how effective the “treatments” are.

    but it is far from traditional medicine and not a replacement, but more than a spa experience.
