The Importance of Touch
Through the simple process of touch, Reflexology is so effective in the healing process. In the hi-tech world that we live in, touch has taken second place to machines.
Physiotherapists are now using machines instead of their hands. Doctors use machines to scan bodies and no longer rely on their hands for diagnosis. People have forgotten how to hug one another. They now shake hands. They walk past one another in the streets and do not even greet each other.
Electric blankets are used to keep warm in bed - human arms have become redundant. Healing takes place through an exchange of human energies and not through an exchange of electricity.
There is sufficient evidence that over-exposure to electricity increases the risk of cancer. Even living near high voltage pylons is reputed to deplete the immune system.
Research was done in an orphanage in London where the mortality rate of babies was very high. People were paid to come into the orphanage and to play with an experimental group of babies. The mortality rate remained the same for the babies in the control group but the experimental group babies who were played with every day showed a higher survival rate.
When you are feeling down in the dumps and someone hugs you, you immediately feel better. This occurs because of the exchange of human energies and since positive energy can be used to destroy negative energy, you change the energy field of the person and they will immediately feel better.
All of us have the gift of healing in our hands. You instinctively use your hands to heal. When you bang your knee, you automatically put your hand on it. When a child bangs his head against something, you put your hand on his head. You are transmitting healing energy without even knowing it.
Reflexology, which is an ancient form of healing which stimulates energy points in the feet, hands and body, is one modality that effectively transmits healing energy.
