What is Reflexology ?
Reflexology is an complementary therapy used for a variety of conditions and has been in use for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians have documented practices similar to reflexology as a treatment for certain afflictions.
It involves the reflexologist applying pressure to specific areas in either the feet, hands, face or ears that affect certain reflex areas of the body.
Imagine there is a connection between zones of your feet and hands that represent certain areas of your body that can be adjusted or managed through these zones. There are plenty of studies that have supported the claims of reflexologists.
It is becoming increasingly accepted in the medical world, as thousands of physicians across the world have been using reflexology for generations, with positive results.
The health benefits of reflexology include its ability to improve the nerve functions, raise energy levels, increase circulation, and much more.
Relaxation / Stress / Anxiety
Reflexology has been known to open neural pathways, this sort of free-flowing neural activity results in a more relaxed state in the body. For this reason, reflexology can flood your system with relaxation, inducing a state of calmness throughout your body and mind.
Reduction in Headaches / Migraines
Reflexology is primarily used by many people as a method of eliminating pain. As an analgesic treatment, reflexology can reduce the severity of a migraines and headaches, simply by relieving tension in the muscles that can often result in these conditions.
Boosted Energy Levels
By aligning the functioning of various organ and muscle systems, reflexology can increase metabolism and energy creation processes within the body. If you need a boost of energy or are always feeling sluggish, perhaps a reflexology session could be what you need!
Reflexology for Lymphatic Drainage
One of the most well-known and verified benefits of reflexology is an improvement in circulation throughout the body, which means that blood and oxygen are being cycled through the body more effectively. This means more oxygen reaches vital organs, thereby optimizing their functioning and further increasing the metabolism.
Elimination of Toxins
Reflexology has been shown to improve bladder function and reduce urinary tract issues. What this means in terms of toxicity is a more efficient system of eliminating toxins and other foreign substances, thereby protecting your body from the various diseases and health conditions that can often arise from a compromised urinary system.
Reflexology for Infertility
Reproductive Reflexology can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance your natural fertility or with all forms of assisted conception including Clomid, IUI, IVF, and ICSI. It can also be used to support individuals and couples using surrogacy or donors in IVF cycles.
