The Principles of Foot Massage

By: Icy | Posted: 20th September 2012

The major foot massage principle includes: the blood circulation principle, the principle of reflection endocrine and the meridian theory.
1 blood circulation principle
Whole body's blood circulation of the beating of the human heart, driven in large circulation of blood within the arteries clean the intravenous blood is not clean, intravenous blood flow than arterial blood flow rate is slow. The vein internal clean blood "impurities" such as uric acid crystal, very easy to settle down. These sediments are subject to the influence of Earth's gravity, over many years, the last stranded in the human foot, causing the foot to poor blood circulation. As a result, the heart will burden the tissues and organs of the body "dependent", the body's tissues and organs function will go a long decline, people will feel uncomfortable, causing varying degrees of abnormal reactions of the human body. Full foot reflex zone massage, foot temperature will increase the blood flow speed (was determined that there is no foot massage, foot blood flow velocity of 12mm / s, full massage foot blood flow rate can reach 24 - 25mm / s); sediments of foot massage "broken", it will participate in the circulation as blood circulation accelerated re-excreted through the urinary system and excretory organs. 3-5 days after our comprehensive foot reflex zone massage, you will find very turbid and excreted in the urine odor is very strong, which makes the whole body feels relaxed and energetic. Stimulation of the foot reflex zone massage can improve blood circulation, reduce the burden on the heart, improve metabolic function.
2 reflection principle endocrine
The reflex is a reaction to external stimuli. There will be varying degrees of changes within the foot reflex points corresponding abnormal phenomenon when the tissues and organs of the body, such as: bubbles, sand granular, granular, bar lock like small nodules. Massage to stimulate reflex zones is very obvious tenderness, this pain along the afferent nerves to the central nervous conduction coordination, central nervous system, the occurrence of new nerve impulse conduction along efferent to the tissues and organs in the body, causing a series of neurohumoral regulation, stimulating the body's potential to regulate the body's immunity and disease resistance function, regulating some imbalance in the body; reflection of the original pathology information also can block the cerebral cortex of patients has formed a pathological when excited stove, touch and pressure and pain impulses came by foot reflex zone will be formed another excited stove, along with the the massage time the extension of this excitement stove in the superposition law of effect will gradually strengthen, and more than a pathological excitement stove, be suppressed even completely disappear. Meanwhile, the body will generate a lot of special "substance", such as infrared radiation, electricity and magnetism, and a variety of endogenous drug factor ", these particular" substance, factor "is the most beneficial to the human body, the most effective treatment factor, foot massage will appear magical effect is entirely reasonable.

3. Meridian principle

The Meridian Theory is the main theory of traditional Chinese medicine, traditional medicine. Five thousand years ago the Chinese Yellow Emperor records and foot massage enables health "concept toe, articles. Contemporary science has proved the human meridian is there, its structure is the meridian line, cuticle thin, so low impedance; meridian line is very sensitive, very rich in nerve endings and nerve bundles around; meridian line rich in capillaries and especially dense, metabolic blood flow exuberant, so high infrared radiation; meridians around the mast cells into the chain-like dense arrangement, it is highly luminescent; meridians throughout a very thin connective tissue bundle state channel , this channel having a high vibration sound characteristics.

Meridian is a "channel", the obstruction will feel uncomfortable. Meridian line is connected by the hole point of various body parts, a lot of points on our feet when we massage the foot reflex zones, will stimulate these points, it is the same with the blood circulation and the reflection principle along meridian line line conduction. This conduction like dominoes, and thus play a role to clear the meridians, TCM believes that "pain is unreasonable, not pain, is the truth, so massage foot reflex zone can play the role of the dredge meridians.
In summary, when our foot reflex zone massage stimulation, these principles are unified at the same time play a role, rather than independently to maximize its effectiveness, so the foot reflex zone massage will show a very alarming health effects .
