Reflexology: Healing Is In The Sole

On the 1st August 2009, the St. Petersburg Times ran a comprehensive article about Dwight C Byers and his work in Reflexology.

Byers, who founded the International Institute of Reflexology in St. Petersburg in 1976, is a longtime practitioner of reflexology, a hands-on therapy that entails applying pressure to particular areas on a patient's hands and feet.
Properly applied, Byers says, that pressure can improve circulation, alleviate pain and reduce tension.
Pasted Graphic "Our feet are our foundation," Byers said, "yet most people abuse or neglect them."
Dwight Byers has dedicated his life to healing people by reading their feet.
Byers, who founded the International Institute of Reflexology in St. Petersburg in 1976, is a longtime practitioner of reflexology, a hands-on therapy that entails applying pressure to particular areas on a patient's hands and feet.
Properly applied, Byers says, that pressure can improve circulation, alleviate pain and reduce tension.
"Our feet are our foundation," Byers said, "yet most people abuse or neglect them."
According to practitioners of this therapy, reflex areas in hands and feet correspond to all the glands and organs of the body.
"Those reflexes are a mirror image of our body," Byers said. "The areas that are tender are the ones you need to work on the most."
One recent morning Byers' fingers worked a patient's foot swiftly and adeptly. His thumb and fingers moved in a circular motion, applying careful pressure.
"How you hold the foot is important," Byers said as he worked. "When something is painful you have to back off a little and come back to it."
He works hands and feet for different purposes.
"The feet are more therapeutic," he said, "and the hands are more relaxing."
Hands, he added, are treated differently because of their constant use.
"You have to get in there with pinpoint pressure," he said.
Gaining favor, Reflexology, which dates to the third century B.C. in Egypt, has been used to treat many conditions. Byers said it can help control diabetes, decrease the frequency of nighttime trips to the bathroom by men with enlarged prostates, and reduce the side effects of chemotherapy.
...
Raised on reflexology, Byers, now 80, began learning to "read" feet at age 16 from his aunt, Eunice Ingham, a pioneer in the field.
...
Byers offers seniors a discount for hour long sessions.
Reflexology, Byers said, shouldn't be painful, but the practitioner can't be timid either. "You have to exert authority," he said.
