Our eyes are truly a precious gift from God. Only those who have been denied the gift of sight or those who have lost it truly understand its importance.
Reflexology has helped many in different stages of blindness. It can do no harm and it is always of some benefit even if it fails to give a person perfect eyesight. Reflex massage always relaxes, no matter what one is using it for, and that in its self is good.
You can also bring more beauty to the eyes by using reflex massage as directed.
Stimulating the Kidneys to Strengthen Your Eyes
Two of the most important organs effecting normal functioning of the eyes are the kidneys.
To stimulate the kidneys, massage the reflexes in the center of the feet and also the hands.
Now turn to the reflexes for the eyes themselves. Massage the reflexes just under the two toes next to the big toes where they fasten to the foot, doing this massage on both feet. Use the same massage on the two fingers next to the thumb. If these are tender, the reflexes are in need of massage to break loose certain blockages affecting the normal function of the eyes.
Massaging Eye Reflexes for Better Eyesight
Now we turn to massage of the reflexes near the eyes for correction of many eye problems. If there is tightness of muscles around the eyes, they may pull on the eyeball, distort this shape, and cut off circulation, causing near and far-sightedness. Tight eyelid muscles sometime cause friction on the eyeball that can lead to the formation of Cataracts. If the eye muscles in the back of the eye are tight, the drainage ducts will be squeezed shut and won’t empty properly. This can cause a buildup of fluid resulting in Glaucoma.
To loosen the eye muscles, take you middle fingers and massage along the reflexes underneath both eyes. Press in as you go across and feel for tight muscles. When you find that a muscle is tight, you will also probably find a hard spot or feel the muscles snap under your fingers. When you stimulate the reflexes to the eyes you immediately give renewed energy and life to your eyes.
Don’t do this very often at first. When you over stimulate the eyes, it can give you a terrible headache. Do this only once the first day: then increase as you feel that you can, without any over stimulation. This holds true for the other eye reflex massages and also for the eye exercises I will give you later.
Move to the bones on top of the eyes and repeat the procedure. It may be easier to use the thumbs for this position. Work across the muscles and not with them when you do this massage.
Take your middle finger or thumb and work across the muscles on top of the nose starting deep in the eye socket. You will probable find this very tender, but remember our moto,
“If it hurts, rub it out”
Do this to both eyes: then go across the muscles on the forehead just above the eyebrows. If you feel a hard core or a tight band, you will know that you have found a tight muscle that may restrict the natural flow of electric energy by way of the reflexes. It will probable be quite tender because the circulation of the vital lifeline is being blocked by these hard or tender areas.
Massaging these reflexes around the eyes can also help correct protruding eyes, eyes that hurt or are sensitive to light, and slanted eyes caused by muscle tension.
Please give this a try and you will be amazed about how much better you feel.
