The main thing that I want to focus on is
the colon reflex, the large and the small intestines. So we’re going to start over here on her right
foot, my left. The ileocecal valve, right there. We’re just going to begin to thumb walk up
through the belly of the foot about midway through we’ll switch. That was the ascending colon. Now we’re going to go across here, transverse
colon, go across the other foot. Some people do one foot at a time, that’s
completely fine. When it’s a digestive issue I like to do it
in this way, because I’m starting at the very beginning and going out through the end. Now we’ve just made the bend and we’re going
down the descending colon. You might want to really support the ankle
or the heel here so you have more support when you’re thumb walking down the foot. As you come through here mid point of the
heel, that’s a sigmoid colon. You’re just going to walk, thumb walk out
the rectum reflex. That’s the whole large intestine. The small intestine is just inside that area
right through here. So you can do that also with thumb walking. Thumb walk up, thumb walk up again, and you
can do this from any angle, you can take it across through here. You can also, if you have no one to do this
for you there’s the back of a chair that might have a pole there. You can certainly always roll this area of
your foot over something, that can give it some kind of relief. The other thing you want to be mindful of
is there’s so many different conditions that effect the digestive system. You have constipation, colitis, diverticulitis,
gall stones, so many things that you want to be mindful of if there’s something you
want to give more attention to, please do. Like get that foot, reflexology map, and find
out where the gall bladder reflex is, so for example if you want to be more specific or
if there’s something you’re really trying to get in and nurture a little bit more, just
get your map out and find those points.

  1. Thank you for the great and right to the point explanation on how to massage and tips for foot reflexology πŸ’œ

  2. Sorry but this video was way more confusing that it needed to be, and poorly filmed…At
    times, this woman was giving instructions on parts of the client's foot and we were looking at her face instead….Going back and forth from one foot to the other was also very convoluted…I've seen far better videos on this subject.. She's probably a very good practitioner however, this video was not helpful for me at all. I just didn't know what the heck I was supposed to be doing.. Sorry, thumbs down!

  3. Can you make another video and name the areas of the foot, also if my foot hurt in the area of the colon but my stomach isn't hurting what does it mean?
