Question: I am in the middle of deciding if the reflexology I do is not of the Lord. I do not want to be deceived. I have had many positive results with some muscle tests and with EFT. I read many things on the Internet and am more unsure than ever. I only want Jesus to show me. Any advice?
Answer: It is not the technique necessarily, but the technician. Reflexology is based on the premise that there is a holographic representation of the entire body on the sole of the foot. Different areas when stimulated can have a positive effect on the desired organ or system. The technique itself is massage-like so I do not see why any supernatural issues would arise. Unless by reflexology you mean when practitioners touch a certain spot of your body and that makes a strong arm muscle go weak. If that is the case, then the same rules apply to it as they do to applied kinesiology in the article you just read. EFT is emotional freedom technique and it employs the aggressive tapping of certain acupressure points on the face while saying certain affirmations. Many have been helped by this technique and there are strong neurological reasons for its effectiveness. I have issues with Christians relying on affirmations for emotional healing when in fact, if they believed the scriptures and the new covenant, they would have all of the affirmation they could handle. Again, it comes down to whether or not the practitioner is attempting to make you believe something other than you know to be true about Jesus or the Bible - if he is imparting a new age worldview as part of his treatment. If that is the case then it is time to be concerned.
