The pancreas is a gland organ in the digestive system. The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes, hormones and other fluids such as insulin. With reflexology you stimulate and remove stress from the pancreas by applying pressure to certain zones on the hands and feet. Locating these zones is easy. Reflexology helps people keep their pancreas healthy.
Allow the patient to relax and get comfortable before beginning. This is an essential part of reflexology. If the patient is not comfortable the body does not relax and adds more stress to more organs.
Place the right hand of the patient in your hand. Rub your thumb down the patient’s thumb and down to the palm of their hand. Apply pressure on the ridge of the hand in the fatty part below the index finger. This is a pancreas zone. Rub vigorously.
Take the other hand into your hand. Repeat the process in Step 2 but apply the pressure below the middle finger instead of the index. For the best results, rub at the bottom of the hand close to the wrist.
Place the patient’s foot in your hands and rub on the middle inside of the arch. This is the same zone on both feet and stimulates the pancreas.
If the patient experiences discomfort pain or tension as you rub, apply pressure and work that area until the pain subsides. If the organ is not functioning properly the patient should experience pain during the process.
