Research shows that benefits of reflexology include reduction in stress, improved sleep patterns and increased circulation, all of which contribute to improved health. This ancient healing art utilizes the principle that applied pressure to reflex points on the feet, hand and ears, will reflexively stimulate energy to a related organ in the body and promote healing.
It Can Help With.....
Just doing what reflexology does best – relieving stress – helps the body to return to balance, enabling improved digestion and elimination of waste.
Reflexology resolves to release much of the pent up energy in the human body creating blocks contributing to fatigue.
The reflexologist concentrates on stimulation of the colon, urinary tract, liver, lymphatic system and the lungs. This stimulates the body to eliminate the toxins.
Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health problems. The relaxation benefits of reflexology tend to extend beyond massages. For example, a 2002 study published in the International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics found that a foot massage and reflexology could decrease depression and anxiety in postmenopausal women.
In the U.S., osteoarthritis affects over 50 million people, and it is more common than rheumatoid arthritis. Several studies suggest that reflexology can reduce the pain associated with arthritis.
Migraine & Tension
Foot reflexology can also effectively reduce tension and migraine headaches.
