How Can Reflexology Improve Your Health?

The concept of Reflexology is very simple. The foot contains reflex zones that correspond to all areas of the body. Therefore, by massaging these specific points, a reflexologist can positively affect the health of associated organs and tissues, to unblock the flow of energy in the body. 

It is easy to understand why Reflexology is so popular. It is relaxing and stimulating, both emotionally and physically. Consequently, it’s an outstanding way to relax after a long day at work and can help maintain work-life balance. Some examples of benefits reported by reflexology clients are that the treatments help them sleep better, recover from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and lessen the frequency and intensity of migraines. 

What to Expect from Reflexology Treatments

During a reflexology session, you will be lying or sitting on a massage bed. Then your practitioner will gently massage your feet, paying particular attention to the reflex points. Next, your reflexologist will note which areas have strong reflexes and will apply techniques to help resolve the reflexes.

Here are some specific ways Reflexology helps your health and healing:

Energy Levels

Reflexology can provide an increased sense of wellbeing and can help you manage your stress levels, making you feel more alive and energetic.

Pain

The primary aim of Reflexology in pain management is to help you relax, stopping the loop of pain and tension that feed into each other. Reflexology is most helpful for specific types of discomfort. Stress related disorders such as discomfort from delayed digestion, migraine headaches, and generalized muscle tension benefit the most from Reflexology. 

Allergies

Reflexology can help in relieving allergies like hay fever and other forms of sinus congestion. In this way, it allows you to breathe better and feel more comfortable. 

Blood Pressure

Through its effect on promoting relaxation, Reflexology helps normalize your blood pressure. It is a great alternative treatment that has the potential to lessen your need for medication, but always follow the advice of your physician.

Skin Health

Reflexology treatments can help improve common skin problems like acne and pimples.

Sleep Quality

If you’re having trouble sleeping, try Reflexology treatments instead of popping a pill. You will notice that with repeated Reflexology treatments, your sleep and energy levels will improve.

Feeling Younger

With the help of Reflexology, you may find that your vitality for life significantly improves, including more energy and strength to do the things you love to do.
