Gaby Rockett Talks about Reflexology on SA FM Radio

I was invited by SA FM Radio to talk about reflexology. What a great opportunity to share the benefits of reflexology with the general public.

Everyone can benefit from reflexology, it aids the body in many ways; by improving blood supply carrying with it a good supply of oxygen which is needed for the body to function optimally. It promotes improves nerve impulses to all organs and it helps the body achieve homeostasis.

The body heals according to Hering's Law, chronic disease symptoms disappear in definite order, the most recent symptoms are the first to disappear. Healing takes place first with the most life threatening conditions internally moving towards the exterior of the body, and healing from the head downward.

The symptoms a patient presents with are warning signs of the body being out of balance, and since many patients are on chronic medication one must remember that medications have side effects and the symptoms could also be as a result of medication. It is therefore crucial for a Therapeutic Reflexologist to do a thorough consultation with each patient and to look at the patient from a holistic point of view taking everything into consideration.

Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) is very good at aiding the body in eliminating toxins and it benefits breast cancer patients suffering with secondary lymphoedema as a result of medical intervention. It also is very effective for patients suffering from auto immune diseases. In these chronic diseases the more toxins leave the body the less pain the patient experiences. RLD is very effective in patients suffering from primary lymphoedema.

"Prevention is better than cure" and as such it is important to take care of the body from the inside. In the case of patients suffering from chronic diseases weekly treatments for 6 to 8 weeks are recommended. At each treatment the patient is evaulated and treatment intervals can be increased to the point of maintenance. Maintenance will vary from patient to patient and this is discussed with each patient.

For those just wanting to manage the effects of stress monthly reflexology treatments is of an enormous benefit to the body.

I am registered with the Board of Healthcare Funders which enables patients to claim reflexology treatements from their medical aid.
