The wonders of ‘kolkolis’

The wonders of ‘kolkolis’ -, Philippine News for Filipinos

Kolkolis is an indigenous form of reflexology where sticks are beaten on one’s soles. Songaben Payoyo, a 66 year old healer practices it in the Philippines.
“This is not mere massage. This is healthy to everyone, especially the old,” he says.

“Even when I was young, some foreigners would ask the elders in the village what kolkolis was good for. The elders would say it makes the nerves awake,” he says.

“It’s rare for those who undergo kolkolis regularly to suffer a stroke,” he says.

Editor's note- I have never heard of this. Has anyone out there ever tried this?
