Alternative and Complementary Remedies for Hypertension

Reflexology

Reflexology can improve the functioning of heart and circulatory system and the hypertension by focusing on relaxation, and by reducing stress. 

Press the following points in the hands or feet for two minutes. Begin with the left hand, then the right hand, then left foot, and then the right foot. Do this in the morning and in the evening.

52 (hands only), 1, 2, 3, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25.

Reflexology Session for Hypertension

1. Start with a Reflexology Warm-Up. This helps you relax, tones the energy of the whole body, and prepares your feet to be worked on.

2. Start directly on the heart and chest area. This area stretches from the diaphragm line to the base of the toes on both feet. Using a technique called the thumb walk, work on this area thoroughly. 

3. Now work on the heart reflex on your left foot. This area helps strengthen and regulate the heart.

4. Work over the diaphragm line running just below the ball of the foot using thumb walk. This will help deepen and open your breathing and bring more oxygen and ch'i or prana to each cell.

5. Work on the reflex areas for your chest. This area is located on top of both feet, in the troughs between the toes. Starting in zone 1 (at the base of the big toe), work up toward your leg, about 2 inches up from the webbing. Continue working each zone, ending in zone 5 near the outside edge of your foot. Press with your index finger, using the finger walk.

6. Around the base of your big toe (on the bottom of your foot) is the reflex area for the thyroid and parathyroid glands. These regulate the pulse rate and help with calcium absorption. Work the reflex zone for the thyroid gland by rubbing and pressing. Use the finger or thumb walk technique.

7. Now work on the spine reflexes. These are located on the inside edge of both feet (zone 1), extending from the heel nearly to the top of the big toe, opposite the root of the toenail. Work slowly up the foot and then all the way down using the thumb walk technique. Working on the spine reflexes nourishes the nervous system that feeds the entire body.

7. Now, work on the soft center of your foot, from the diaphragm line down to the midline. This will stimulate the liver, kidneys, adrenals, and other organs vital for circulation and the regulation of water levels in the body. Thoroughly cover this area, moving up, down, and/ or diagonally. Use the thumb walk technique.
