My name is Henny Pietersma. I’m a reflexologist since 2008 and have a practice in the north of Eindhoven. I have had a study in reflexology because it is a valuable addition to my study physiotherapy (1997) and the regular medical science.
What is reflexology
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves a precise pressure technique using the thumbs and fingers on the reflex areas found in the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is extremely effective in restoring the body’s natural balance. It is based on the principle that reflexes in the feet, hands and ears correspond to each organ and structure in the body. They are linked to those organs by energy channels, zones or meridians. When illness occurs in the body, the corresponding energy channels become blocked. Reflexology is applied to destroy these blockages, allowing the energy to flow freely again, so restoring the body's natural balance and therefore good health. In this way the course of your problems is treated.
Reflexology improves circulation, induce relaxation and enable homeostasis. This encourages the person's own healing systems to be activated to maintain wellbeing.
When is reflexology useful
Reflexology is an effective treatment for many kinds of problems and symptoms, including general or chronic aches and pains, lung problems, stomach problems, intestine problems, joint problem such as back pain, PMS, migraine, digestive problems, disorders of the urinary system, lymphatic system, immune system, nervous system, hormonal disorders (endocrine system), diabetes and more.
It is also helpful for emotional issues like stress, depression, sleeping problems and burn-out.
