What is massage?
The word massage comes from the Greek root “masso”- to touch. Massage is one of the most natural, relaxing and beneficial arts of healing for the body.
What is Reflexology?
There are approximately nerve endingsin the feet that directly correspond to systems (organs
, glands, for example).
Reflexology is a method of using direct pressure
and circular movement with the finger or thumb to stimulate reflex points
located in the feet, hands and ears. This energetic therapy can
be of use to boost the client’s systems and increase the healing process. Therefore,
an unblocked natural flow of energy results in an
improvement of health and well-being.
What is Chakra?
The word “chakra” is from a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel of light.” There are seven major chakras located at
the midline, an imaginary line that divides the body into right and left, and
hundreds of minor chakras located all over the body.
Chakras are subtle energy centers that
emanate a luminous light, which makes up the aura surrounding the body. This
subtle energy spinning in and out of the chakras
is constant, and it is believed to stop spinning only at death.
Practitioners may be able to see, feel,
and measure the frequency of the chakras by second sight, the laying on of
hands, and even the use of a pendulum or other resources.
What is Brazilian Chakras Reflexology©?
Brazilian Chakras Reflexology is a
holistic technique that combines reflexology and chakras knowledge. This type
of bioenergetic foot massage focuses on direct pressure and circular movement with the finger and thumb to the reflex points, a total fifty-five reflex
points on the feet. This bioenergy therapeutic works on the seven major
chakras, following the natural flow of energy; it begins from the first chakra
and ends with the seventh chakra.
How does the energy flow up the chakras?
The source of the energy is absorbed into the human body through the first chakra. This energy flows from the first chakras, end and out of each of the six chakras, until it leaves the top of the head, like a fouintain.
Rosalyn L. Bruyere, in her book Wheels of Light, explains, “When energy enters the body through the feet and moves up to the first chakra, it does so by moving from the thighs in the direction of the tailbone, which spins the energy down and forward at an angle. So, the first chakra does not really face forward.” The natural energy pattern is to move upward in a continuous flow, in and out of the spine, and out through the top of the head.
So the energy, whose source comes from the earth’s magnetic field or from another philosophical point of view, some would say the universe, enters the human body through the feet. This is why working with the feet is so important. Chakras are interdependent with the body’s neurological and physiological systems and this impacts a person psychologically.
