I am a happy bunny! My friend has just left after giving me a reflexology treatment and my knee, and everything else, feels wonderful.
After the treatment she correctly said I had been having trouble with my back and shoulders, which I have from sitting at the computer too much - RSI!
About three years ago after giving me a treatment she urged me to go to the doctor because she said there was a big black splodge (her words) showing up on my foot in the area of my uterus. At the time I knew I had a fibroid but it wasn't troubling me at all. I promised I would go to see the doctor but promptly forgot all about it. About six weeks later I was rushed into hospital because I was unable to pass water and after doing scans and tests they discovered that the fibroid had grown from 7cm to 17 cm and was obstructing my bladder. This was the splodge! All this resulted in me having an hysterectomy, so now whatever she tells me she sees/feels in my feet is taken very seriously indeed!
Reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China and was introduced to the West round about 1900 by Dr. William Fitzgerald. He had noticed that reflex areas on the feel and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone. It was further developed by Eunice Ingham in the 1930's into what we now call reflexology. Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which works on the feet to help heal the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.

Great night's sleep again and no meds during the night. I have managed to cut all meds down by half now. Knee much more flexible since my lovely friend's administrations this morning!
