Marta Kimonte – Oriental healing specialist. Practicing Chinese foot massage and Oriental medicine since 2015.
There is an aphorism in China: “When a tree grows old, its roots grow old first; when a man grows old, his feet grow old first.”
The miraculous properties of Chinese foot massage are based on the principles of reflexology, which have been developed over many millennia.
The position of the feet is a kind of mirror that projects the position of the internal organs. For example, the thumb is responsible for the functioning of the brain, we can determine to what extent a person is tired or under mental tension by the pressure on this finger. There is a projection of the spine on the inner edge of the feet, stimulating the points of the relevant part can relieve pain in the waist or shoulder area. In the middle of the foot there are points that correspond to the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, stimulating these points can significantly improve the functioning of the stomach or intestines. Stimulating the reflex points by pressing on them allows you to achieve relaxation, relieve tension and even help the body fight and resist diseases.
As part of Butiba festival, Marta will perform a foot massage circle. This is a very bonding, positive and in its own way intimate process that allows you to connect with your body in a collective way with the help of reflexology.
