Breaking Muscle Video – What Is Reflexology?
The reflexologist is a specialist in the field of health and wellness. They are usually physicians or other medical professionals with advanced training in medicine, psychology, chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy and many other fields. A reflexologist’s primary focus is to improve their patients’ overall well being through various methods such as healing and prevention techniques.
A reflexologist specializes in treating illnesses and conditions caused by imbalances within the body. These imbalances may include diseases, injuries, allergies, mental disorders and other physical problems.
A reflexologist will try to restore balance to these areas by using specific therapies. Some of these therapies involve manipulating the nervous system (neurology) or altering one’s diet (nutrition). Other therapies are used to treat symptoms like headaches, backaches, joint pains and other aches and pains.
Reaction time is a measure of how quickly our bodies react to stimuli. When it comes to reflexology, the term “reactive” refers not only to what happens when something goes wrong but also what happens when something goes right.
Reactions are triggered by certain thoughts and feelings which then cause us to do things that might otherwise be considered unwise or even dangerous. For instance, if you’re walking down a dark alley at night and hear a noise, your first thought might be that you are in danger. Depending on your personality, you might either freeze in fear (bad) or run away as fast as you can (worse). The point is, your body recognizes a threat and reacts to it without conscious thought on your part. This is an example of a “good” reflex because it keeps you safe.
