The integrity of the structures governs the functions of the body, either in a positive or negative way depending on the type and location of the structural 'lesion'
My experience in reflexology has shown me that the reverse can also be true: Mal function can also govern structure, in this case of the feet.
It is well known in reflexology circles that a bunion commonly relates to thyroid, hormonal dysfunction causing the structural abnormality of the metatarsal joint.
However I have seen many instances of a malfunction in the body causing a range of structural changes in the feet, particularly where cardiological problems are present.
The foot print example below is one of many I took of people with cardiological conditions.
There are others shown on my Instagram pages.
Note the pressure points on the left metatarsal joints, plus the absence of the three toes indicating tension and imbalance, caused possibly through the influence of the vagus nerve in cardiological conditions.
I have hundreds of other examples of similar cases.
These examples demonstrate the hidden 'layers' of reflexology which are discussed and demonstrated at my ART seminars.
I hope you find this of interest which will, I hope add more value to your great work.
