First of all, so we are all on the same page, Reflexology is a therapeutic massage method that targets specific pressure points, usually on the hands and feet, but also the face. This controlled, pain relieving pressure works due to the fact that there are certain points on your body that are triggered to stimulate blood flow and nutrients, and alleviate the source of the discomfort. These points are called “reflex points” and these zones and reflex points on different parts of the body correspond to and are relative to all parts, glands and organs of the entire body. In the absence of any particular abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it is for relieving symptoms of stress, injury and illness.
What is it good for?
Reduce Stress and Tension
Reflexology is a proven method of reducing full body stress and tension by initiating the relaxation response. It also is effective at improving nerve and blood supply throughout the body.
By means of touching therapy, any part of the body that is the source of pain, illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of pressure at the respective foot, hand and head location.
Improve Mood and Reduce Stress
By relieving pain throughout the body, the physical and mental state will feel a sense of ease and relaxation. In turn, moods are improved and stress will be reduced!
With reflexology, the treatments will improve overall circulation in the body, and compliment all other healing modalities. This helps with the healing process from injuries as well as proactive injury avoidance, and overall comfort and wellness by helping flush toxins and help keeping your body circulatory systems function at their best.
Who is a good candidate for Reflexology?
Anyone who experiences pain and discomfort would be a prime candidate for receiving reflexology treatment. Reflexology is also great for those who don’t love traditional massages, as it works by targeting certain areas without removing clothing or being touched all over the body! It is great for people who experience anxiety, cardiovascular issues, asthma, chronic headaches, and especially physical and mental stress!
