Air, Water, Earth, and Fire make up all four basic elements on our planet.
Nothing could exist without all four present, and we need a balance of each element in our lives for health.
*The air to breathe
*The water to drink
*The earth to give us a place to stand, provide structure, and supply an element which to grow food.
*The sun (fire) to provide light and heat
By using the characteristics of the four elements in relationship to the feet, a reflexologist can get a general overview of the present condition of the foot owner.
During the normal course of one’s life, the elements go in and out of balance in a continuously changing state of health.
