I think this is good for some bodily ailments but it is not advisable for all. It is also not a cure but a complementary therapy that would help in easing the pain. I have read the problems about hip pain at the depuypinnaclelawsuit. com that are not easily treated by just medications and exercises alone but the patients may benefit from this therapy.

This is good news.

Ultimately we all are capable of healing us ourselves, I believe we just forgot about how to do it. Reflexology has some magical powers to it, which can be explained by stimulating our nerv cells, however, it's still tough to get your head around it that these parallel points are able to provide more blood flow to specific areas in our body. Anyone who ever felt the positive effects of reflexology knows there is something to it, we may not be able to explain it but it does something good to us. Most of us, including me don't know how electricity works but we still know it's there and use it...
