Reflexology and Cervical spondylopathy
Reflexology works through our nervous system. There are 7,200 nerve endings on the foot. Using alternating pressure, reflexology helps stimulate circulation and delivery of oxygen and nutrients to our entire body, body systems, organs, glands and parts. There is a modern history to reflexology which is about 100 years old, and then there is also an ancient history that goes back 4000 years in Egypt and India. On the walls in the "Physician's Tomb" in Egypt there are hieroglyphics that show Egyptians working on each other's hands and feet. In India, there is Buddha's footprint with many symbols and pictures on the bottom of his foot correlating to what is believed to be some form of reflexology.
Modern reflexology can be traced back to physicians working in the United States. A handful of books have been written about reflexology and research is actively being done. Reflexology techniques have assisted in relieving acute and chronic health problems as well as used to help maintain good health.
