By using skillful pressure to specific points in the feet, a reflexologist helps balance the systems within your body.
Reflexology feels good, but it is much more in depth than a good foot massage. For either preventive care or in response to health challenges, reflexology supports balance, stress release and healing.
It has been shown to improve circulation. Circulation carries oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and carries wastes away. Improved circulation can result in increased muscles tension and soreness, and reduced swelling from injuries or illness. Immune function, skin tone and the ability to concentrate also improve when circulation is increased.
Reflexology is used as complementary care for people with a variety of conditions. For example, reflexology can alleviate headaches. Reduce arthritic and back pain, give support during addiction withdrawal, ease premenstrual discomforts and reduce the symptoms of diabetes.
The more often you receive reflexology, the more benefits you are likely to notice. Your reflexologist will help you decide the best frequency to meet your specific needs. As you begin to experience feelings of well-being from your sessions, you may become more aware of how it feels to be truly relaxed. This can help you recognize areas of tension, so you can take constructive steps to release them in your daily life.
