What Is Reflexology?

For the Reflexologist, the feet are a microcosm of the human body and every organ and body part is represented in the feet. Where there are two organs in the body they will be represented on both feet, e.g. lungs and kidney and where there is only one organ, this will be represented on one foot, e.g. the liver will be on the right foot while the heart will be on the left.

Hypnosis and How It Works

When people think of hypnosis, they usually think of someone waving a pocket watch in front of your face and then being able to get you to believe anything they want you to. Actually, this is not what hypnosis is like at all!

Multivitamins and Antioxidants for Health and Fitness

Your needs are dramatically increased by added physical activity. If you are coming up short on your antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, you may be headed down the path to poor health. For all activity levels, a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement is very important.

Does Acupuncture Work?

Chinese medicine is responsible for a number of natural therapies, and acupuncture is probably the best known of them. Acupuncture works on the theory that your body contains energy centers at specific, strategic points. These energy centers are then linked to a particular part of the body.

Reiki: Healing Through Energy Transfer

Reiki is a hands-on healing art based on the belief that there is a Universal Life Energy, present everywhere. When channeled properly, this energy promotes healing. The method was discovered, or perhaps more accurately, rediscovered, by a Japanese theologian in the mid-1800's.
