One of the key features of the of Revs Reflexology Shoes is the Massage Insole. The technology and design behind Revs uses the science of Reflexology to stimulate and revitalise the whole body.
“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.
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, Revs uses natural rubber nodules and provides you with a generous all day massage every day!
This is why some people can find some parts of the feet sensitive and some not – it depends what is going on for you and 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 has gone.
The tenderness may be due to long or short term health conditions, as I mentioned before my brother can’t wear them with a hangover but that’s usually just on a Sunday! Where as, if you have a health condition that has been going on for years, it is a bit like peeling an onion, 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!
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 you receive an effective level of stimulation and comfort in the right places. There are about 1000 natural rubber nodules in varying heights and widths on the soles which massage and stimulate the reflex points on the sole of the feet, which correspond to all of the glands, organs, muscles and parts of the body.
The idea behind Reflexology is not new. In fact, it was practised 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 since 1942, Reflexology workshops have been conducted year round. The Ingham Method of reflexology is used primarily for relaxing tension. Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. Reflexology improves nerve and blood supply, and helps nature to normalise.
As you walk or stand, these nodules massage all your reflex points at the same time. When various reflexes are stimulated they induce 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.
