Reflexology is an effective, natural therapy that can help to re-balance the body and mind. It can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and is based upon the principle that there are connections between areas of the feet and areas in the body. By stimulating certain reflex points on the feet, specific organs and systems in the body can be manipulated or adjusted.
Here are 5 popular health benefits of Reflexology:
1) Improved Nerve Function
Reflexology works with over 15,000 different nerve endings in the feet. Over time, as we age, our nerve endings become less sensitive. A single treatment can help to increase nerve function and reactivity – improving overall nerve health. Neural pathways are like muscles; they need to be stimulated every now and again to stay sharp & responsive to change.
2) Heightened Energy Levels
Reflexology helps to increase the body’s metabolism. This is turn improves our organ function; blood and oxygen flow – improving our energy levels for the day.
3) Improved Circulation
One of the best-known benefits of reflexology is that it significantly improves the body’s circulatory system. This means that more oxygen reaches the vital organs – improving their function and state of health. Better circulation also means faster healing of any damaged or unhealthy cells.
4) Healing Relaxation
Reflexology encourages the body and mind to enter into a deeply relaxed state. When the body is relaxed, the effects of stress can be reversed. Reflexology is often used to overcome sleep disorders, anxiety and hormonal imbalances – helping the body to get back to its normal, healthy state.
5) Elimination of Toxins
Reflexology helps to support the body’s elimination systems. The efficiency of the liver and bladder are improved, meaning the body’s toxicity levels are lowered – allowing for better health and protection from disease.
