How to Relieve Asthma | Reflexology

By Adem Lewis / in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , /

So how to relieve asthma using some foot reflexology
techniques. Certainly you’re gonna wanna focus on the
lung reflexes. The lung reflexes are housed in the ball of
the foot and also on the dorsum so they’re all up here as well so we’re gonna want to
really detail that area. Certainly if you are having an asthmatic attack
definitely call 911 and get to the doctor; have something in place. Reflexology is a great complimentary practice,
but it’s certainly a complimentary practice. You’re gonna want to seek professionals should
you be having an attack. So we’ll start with the lung reflexes. For the lungs we could do the thumb walking
and we’ll just come up here on the plantar aspect of the foot all the way up to the base
of the toes and then we’ll come back down. So the other thumb will come down, and I’m
really supporting with the other hand, with my fingers and my whole hand, and then you
come up again, and if someone has asthma you want to really detail that area, so in addition
to walking, thumb walking up and down, you could also thumb walk across. So you’ll finish there, all the way across,
and then you can go across from the lateral aspect to the medial aspect, so the outside
of the foot to the inside, you go across, so you’re thumb walking across. And you’ll go all the way up; you’ll finish
right up there. To do the dorsal aspect, or the top of the
foot, I use finger walking. So with finger walking you’ll just come up
through here and you’re just gonna come down. So again it’s just little bites. And I come up. And I’m going between the metatarsals so if
you want to be a little bit more detailed you could go towards, for instance, the second
metatarsal here and then you could do it again and detail towards the third just to have
more detailed work. Another thing, you know, if someone is having
an asthma attack a doctor will administer adrenaline. The adrenal gland naturally produces adrenaline
so you could give some attention to the adrenal gland reflex and that’s right in here on the
plantar, the bottom of the foot, the plantar aspect. So from here you just go right in there. You could thumb walk to find it but generally
it’s going to be around mid-foot in between this first and second metatarsal, a little
bit leaning towards that first. And then lastly you could come along here
and you could end with the solar plexus reflex to ease the tension and relax the body. So you come up through here, your thumbs meet
at the center, and then you just lean a little forward to meet the point. And that will be it. Those will be the reflexes you detail for
attention to asthma.

  1. I'm sorry, but you can't cure anything by massageing your feet. Its just phycological medicine, thus : the plicbo effect… dumbasses

  2. I wanna meet the person who though of foot rubs as an asthma cure, then i wanna meet his drug dealer. jkjkjk

  3. Exactly…the only result is maybe smoother skin on your soles….

    Howcast is really going down… :<

  4. no offense to the presenter, but do you have documented evidence to prove the efficacy of reflexology? the only thing i can see this curing is a foot cramp.

  5. Placebo response is powerful and has to be measured in drug trials, it gets up to 70% of the results of drugs, and in some cases surgery, without the side effects. And since it's part of the clinical trials, there is LOTS of proof of that! Anything that can predictably trigger a healing response is worth having! I know that the Brompton Hospital (cardio/respiratory specialist centre) in London is running clinical trials on reflexology. It will be very interesting to see what the results are.

  6. i just tried this when i was experiencing shortness of breathe from asthma and as soon as i did it i felt relief! i could tell i could breathe deeper and actually felt like i could breathw for once! amazing!

  7. … this does not help ladies and gentlemen, it is basically the same concept like the paper bag. Can really help panic attacks and really might work for mild asthmatics that might need to relax. For chronic asthma this won't help, so get you pro-air or mess and if so head to the doctor.

  8. hey ,if anyone else wants to learn about chronic asthma try Jaffacter Prevent Asthma Coach ( search on google ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my mate got cool success with it.

  9. There are several components to treating asthma naturally. One resource I discovered which successfully combines these is the Laken Chest Remedy (google it if you're interested) it's the most incredible plan that I've seen. Check out all the awesome information .

  11. 👌👌🖒🖒👏👏Thanks it's very useful ,my father is asthma patient when he got attack of asthma i do this by Allah's Mercy he feels well

  12. I got an asthma attack from laughing way too much from watching some Ellen videos and I don't have an inhaler with me so I tried if this would work and to my surprise I felt somehow relieved. Thanks.

  13. Foot acupressure debunks asthma as an insufficiently researched "disease".
    One gets the same powerful relieving effect by lip pressure. Sufficient and natural lip closure pressure, absent in mouth breathing asthmatics, relaxes lung airways by a reflex loop.
    Therefore just pay careful attention to lip closure to heal asthma. Lip pressure is not only needed for love. I cured my allegedly incurable asthma by lip pressing. More pollen in air (July) more lip pressure.

  15. I got rid of my asthma by pressing on the face between my nose and the upper lip. This obviously relaxes the chest airways by acupressure (GV26). Then I trained to breathe in through the nose to get the same effect. Low and behold, the beastly asthma was gone for ever.
    Why should a spray be the only treatment?

  16. Asthma is not understood by doctors. They happily prescibe drugs but glibly admit not knowing the root cause and ignore acupressure and other asian methods such as marmayoga. Pressing on the lips relaxes lung airways. Google for

    gv26 important

    I cured my chronic asthma by pressing my lips together as a habit, instead of breathing with my mouth open like an asthmatic. This instinctive approach is thwarted by medical indoctrination.

  17. If you know the right Acupressure Points for Asthma and applying techniques, you can treat yourself. Applying Acupressure Points on regular basis gives earlier relief to Asthma:

  18. But the most obvious point is gv26 on the upper lip. Pressing here by holding lips together during nose breathing keeps lung airways open and counters asthma. Mouth breathing may well lead to asthma as we all know.

  19. The elimination of asthma
    There is a bewildering catch 22 dilemma on asthma treatment with acupressure. The acupoints are not on the face, so the advantage and breakthrough by using lip points like gv26 is excluded for no good reason.
    If pressing lips together on inhaling through the nose could be instructed this would mean a revolution with highly effective breathing retraining also entailing sleeping with nose breathing.
