How Foot Reflexology Can Improve Your Health
Whether you are looking for a treatment for yourself, an aging parent, or a young child, many alternative approaches are safe to use for all ages. Reflexology is an alternative treatment that is very safe, has no adverse side effects, and can work for many common illnesses and problems.
What is Reflexology?
Many alternative practices share guiding beliefs and general principles with older medical traditions such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda.
Reflexology shares its roots with ancient medical practices from China, India, and Egypt, and today’s modern method uses the application of pressure to points on the feet.
Each reflex point on these extremities has been mapped and linked to various organs and systems within the body. When you press each location, it releases energy to that corresponding part of the body, which can help your body to heal and remain healthy.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork. Your practitioner is manually manipulating your body to help improve circulation, relieve pain and tension, and improve your overall well-being. These are similar principles used in massage, chiropractic care, and other forms of manipulation.
What Can Reflexology Do for Me?
Many conditions respond well to this form of treatment. Reflexology has been widely used to improve kidney function, treat diabetes and cardiovascular issues, and reduce symptoms of asthma, anxiety, headaches, PMS, and sinus congestion.
Researchers have shown that reflexology is effective at reducing pain as well as improving psychological symptoms like stress and anxiety. It can even help you sleep better at night.
The Benefits of Reflexology
This alternative practice is known to increase your relaxation, boost your circulation, and help you feel less stressed. It is safe to use for generally everyone. Side effects are rare and usually just minor and temporary tenderness at the reflex point site.
If you are ready to tackle your headaches, enjoy a better night’s sleep, or find solutions for your chronic digestive problems, make an appointment today to see a reflexologist.
You’ll be amazed at what this alternative therapy can do for you!
To your health, with love,
