If you have pain in your knee, hips, shoulders or neck... look at the feet
Did you know 3 out of 4 Americans experience serious foot issues in their lifetime according to an article from Pacific College. Most are treatable and preventable.
According to Chinese medicine, Reflexology your foot health directly correlates to your overall health especially your vital organs.
Did you know that an average day of walking creates a force equivalent to several hundred tons on your feet? Your feet do so much to support you all day long. It is no wonder our feet are more likely to be injured than any other part of the human body.
The human foot has 26 bones which is about 1/4 of the bones which make up the human body. If a bone becomes misaligned in a foot it can cause pain in the knee, hip, back, shoulders, neck. Think of a skyscrapper....if the foundation or base of a skyscraper is weak or askew then the rest of the structure of the building becomes weak.
In addition to a plethora of bones the feet house nerve receptors that communicate to the central nervous system. Every time you take a step the foot sends information to the nervous system which redistributes this information to different body parts. This gives us the ability for us to walk. Incredible, right?
So if you experience bone spurs, arthritis, bunions I would recommend seeing a reflexologist near you!
If you'd like to learn more about your feet I have a workshop coming up in summer. Send me an email or comment below for more info! Yogi or not this workshop will be for everyone!
