“Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in our feet which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body” (Dwight C Byers). By stimulating these reflexes in our every day life, it will help to:
- improve nerve and blood supply, and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses
- relieve stress and tension
- bring your body back to its natural balance
These benefits of reflexology can help prevent or alleviate many health problems, in a natural way. The idea behind Reflexology is not new. In fact, it was practiced as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptians. Reflexology as we know it today was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer of this field. Her first book on Reflexology was published in 1938, and today the practice is used worldwide for the prevention and care of a variety of illnesses, ailments, conditions, or just for elaxation and enjoyment.
Revs® Reflexology Shoes are designed to stimulate these nerve pressure points in your feet. Wearing Revs® is similar to receiving a reflexology treatment, where the reflexology therapist would use her thumbs and fingers to massage and stimulate your reflexes, Revs® uses natural rubber nodules.The Revs® Massage Sole is carefully designed to ensure the nodules are the correct height and width at each part of the foot to ensure it maps to the contours of your feet and you receive an effective level of stimulation and comfort in the right places.
As you walk or stand, these nodules massage and stimulate all your reflex points on the soles of your feet, which correspond to all of the glands, organs, muscles and parts of the body. When various reflexes are stimulated they induce a healing response. If sensitivity or tenderness is experienced, this may indicate an imbalance or congestion and with repeated wear these channels of blocked energy can be cleared, resulting in improved health.
The type and duration of any sensitivity is dependent on your individual health, well-being and lifestyle and therefore on what areas of your body are congested, for example, if you suffer from IBS the colon reflex on your foot may feel tender until the toxins are dispelled and the area is decongested, and you should then notice the sensitivity in your feet in this area disappears.
The level of tenderness may also be due to whether you are suffering from long or short term health conditions, for example, toothache may cause some dull pain for a couple of days, where as, if you have a health condition that has been going on for years, you need to peel away the layers and get to the root of the congestion, so it may take a few weeks of wearing Revs to do this…everyone is different and as a result everyone’s experience of Revs is different – it can be a fascinating journey with Revs every step you take!
