Benefits of Reflexology
REFLEXOLOGY...good for your sole and a whole lot more!
Your foot has been described as a roadmap to your body and reflexology is a way to navigate the terrain.
Reflexology is the ancient practice of using the fingers and thumbs to manually stimulate the reflex areas of the feet, hands, and ears. These reflex areas correspond to the body's glands, organs, and body parts, including the feet!
BENEFITS OF REFLEXOLOGY: Not only is reflexology deeply relaxing, it can also relieve stress and tension, improve circulation, and increase the body's nerve impulses. Reflexology offers therapeutic benefits that may ease the following: arthritis, cramps, fatigue, headaches, plantar fasciitis, PMS, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, and much more.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM A REFLEXOLOGY SESSION: You will be comfortably seated in an anti-gravity chair. Relaxing music will be played. Your feet will be placed on a pillow, a soft blanket will be provided and an essential oil of your choice may be applied.
Relaxation/Stress Relief: Reflexology induces deep relaxation, allowing the nervous system to seek its own balance. From the moment the reflexologist’s hands start their work, stress reduction has been shown using measurements of EEG brain activity. There are 24 documented studies demonstrating reflexology’s relaxation effects.
Improves Blood Flow/Circulation: Reflexology increases circulation which cleanses the body of toxins and impurities. Separate studies show that reflexology increases blood flow throughout the body.
Increased Energy: Revitalized energy, improved nerve supply, and overall body balancing are also results.
In general terms, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they provide an efficient pathway to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body's equilibrium.Previous Page< <<<
