Reflexology vs. the Bible

Relexology is a holistic therapy which dispensers believe the feet and hands are a mirror of the body and that by placing pressure on specific reflex points of the feet it will affect the corresponding points of the body.

The ancient healing art of reflexology has been known to man for many thousands of years. It was first practiced by the early Indian, Chinese and Egyptian peoples...

The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of "imbalance", and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium and encourage healing.

The Chinese Art of Healing, written by a Buddhist monk , explains "how the ancients relate massage, which includes reflexology, to the Five Elements and to palmistry....the palm of the hand was a replica of Yin and Yang and could provide information about illness and good health and one's entire fate." The Five Elements are metal, wood, fire, water and earth. "According to the ancient Chinese philosophers, in the beginning was Tao. But then Tao separated into...yin and yang...[which] produced the 'five elements'...

Reflexology is an occult or New Age practice and should not be practiced by Christians.  The traditional black witchdoctor uses a bag of bones to forecast an illness. Others use iridology (eyes) or palm reading and Reflexologists use the feet to diagnose an illness. All these diagnostic methods are variations of witchcraft and come under the judgement of GOD (Deuteronomy 18:9-12).

According to Dr Kurt Koch and Dr W.J Ouweneel, Reflexologists use an extra sensory power of touch, which is a variation of the occultic power to see (clairvoyancy). A persons health no longer depends on God but on how you treat your feet as someone once said: "my badly treated feet influence my daily well-being". Man is incredibly naive to believe this superstition and hogwash.

Sin may play a role in sickness the Bible tells us but Reflexologists however make no allowance for this Biblical principle.

For the Christain the Bible is the yardstick for healing and tells you what to do when sick (James 5:14-16). If only people would examine their hearts for sin (rather than their feet) they would receive more than physical healing. But the devil's strategy is to keep man's eyes off the real cause of illness.

Reflexology cannot be reconciled with Science or the Bible and is a demonically inspired prescription for healing, based on health principles of Taoism. Whoever uses Reflexology rejects the God of the Bible and turns to an idol for healing.
