A clean bowel is the best health tip most natural practitioners will give you since an unhealthy colon can cause so many other problems and diseases, its best to keep as regular as possible. This is not easy for some and reflexology can help with this.
There is nothing better than to have a “clean” internal system and the comfort knowing that bowel movements come several times a day without a thought to a lot of us.
Unfortunately most of us from time to time have issues with our colon and proves to be very difficult to avoid for many. Whether you are a new born or a senior, reflexology will help get the digestive system working at the best of it’s ability for your specific body.
A healthy individual should have bowel movements about 2-4 hours after each meal, three times a day is best. When this happens the bowels are clean and has little to no parasites or bad bacteria and yeast to complicate the whole digestive system. Headaches will start to decrease and back pain will minimize. The whole body is connected and when an organ, body part or gland is not working at it’s best, systems start to slowly fail and one problem starts to become a chain of many more.
There are special techniques that a reflexologist can do to increase bowel movements that will help many other areas of the body function at its best and in a whole make you feel relaxed and energized. The colon in reflexology is spread across both hands or feet and needs to be firmly stimulated by specific direct pressure.
There are also areas in the lower back and spine that will relax the nerve ending that directly relate to the digestive system. This will free up any blocked energy and get your system “flowing” by means of voiding or detoxifying the body as a whole.

After a reflexology treatment, there may be some side effects that are not the most pleasant but needed to start the process of healing.
A reflexology session helps improve your bodily functions and may result in flatulence or burping. A backed up or clogged colon will cause many stresses on the body that may not be as easy to relate the problems to each other. Some of these symptoms are:
- feeling sluggish / no energy
- nausea / vomiting
- abdominal swelling
- loss of appetite/weight loss
- headaches / migraines
- back pain
Specific parts of the plantar or “bottom” of the feet are worked when a client comes with a issue like constipation. This should be relieved in a short amount of sessions when done close together. This is likely to be set up so there are 3 sessions in a week to 10 day time frame. Many people have a bowel movement or movements after their first session.
Along with reflexology, your client may want to do a flush of the colon or a gall bladder cleanse. This actually cleans your liver, stomach,small / large intestines,kidneys, urinary tract,basically your whole digestive system. A great way to do an internal clean that is not too time consuming, inexpensive and easy to accomplish. You will finish this feeling less bloated, easier bowel movements and be more regular.
