G is for.. Gallstones

G is for.. Gallstones

Continuing on with my blog series on common aliments that Reflexology can help with is G is for Gallstones.

Gailstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can form in your Gail  bladder. They can block your bile duct and cause abdominal pain. They can also cause inflammation to the gallbladder.

When the body is in pain the last thing people want to do is have that part of the body touched so that’s why Reflexology can be the treatment for pain relief for gallstones and other gallbladder issues.

Gallstones are treated by working on the gallbladder, the liver, the stomach and the solar plexus reflexes.  These reflexes can be found in the following areas on the foot.

The gallbladder- right foot, in the middle of the foot below the middle toe.

The liver- right foot, across the centre of the foot from one side to the other.

The stomach – mainly in the middle of the left foot.

The solar plexus- this is a spot that is on both feet just under the lung reflex below the second and third toes.

Reflexology can also be used to relax the whole body and therefore help release the tension and pressure been held by the bodies digestive system .

Like any treatment it is recommended that you get 4-6 reflexology sessions to allow the body to respond to the treatments.

Stay holistic 🙂
