The health benefits of “Foot Reflexology Path”

Introduction

A “Reflexology Foot Path” is a path designed to massage and stimulate acupressure points on the soles of the feet, which are connected to various energy meridians of the body.

To create the reflexology foot path, soft and smooth river rocks (or cobblestone) are placed in the path to stimulate neurological reflex zones on the foot to create health and well-being.

The stimulation of the reflex zones may initially create pain and soreness. In fact, that depends on how healthy you are. Little children can run on such path with little or no pain at all.

Actually, reflexology foot paths are common in China.

A recently completed study by scientists at the Oregon Research Institute (ORI) confirmed that walking on a cobblestone mat surface resulted in significant reduction in blood pressure, and improvement in balance and physical performance among adults 60 and over.

  • If I am willing to travel within the coming 18 month
