There are 7,000 nerve endings on each foot.
The human foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and tendons.
25% of all of the bones in your body are in your feet.
Reflexologists believe that the feet are the map of the human body and that all the various organs and systems of the body can be balanced by stimulating these pressure points.
This information can help bring us to a better understanding of why Reflexology feels so good and can have such a beneficial effect on our overall health and well being.
Walking or standing barefoot outdoors is hugely beneficial and I would go as far as to say is essential for human health.
As we walk barefooted directly connected to the earth each of those 14,000 nerve endings are being stimulated and we are absorbing electrons from the surface of the earth
The human body is made up of mostly water and minerals making it an excellent conductor. As these electrons pass through the body they can help to restore natural balance by counteracting the effects of free radicals. There are many proven benefits to being barefoot most center around reducing inflammation, and restoring the bodies natural rhythms.
The human body is perfectly designed for health and well being. Our job is to support it as best we can.
