Reflexology is a particular method in which, through deeply relaxing massage and sensory perception, wellness is promoted from the inside of your body outwards.
The feet are primarily focused on through this gentle pressure bodywork technique. It is more than a foot massage. I have studied reflex zones on the human body and how to support the internal organs and every body system with reflexology. The teaches of this support that a vital energy is circulating within our bodies – between every living cell in us. If that energy is blocked, it can be sensed in the feet and through the release of that energy can help minimize pain, tension, etc.
Many conditions like arthritis, diabetes, nerve, and circulatory issues can show initial symptoms on the foot! There are more than 7000 nerve endings on the foot and mapped reflexes with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques that can help support the body’s natural healing and detoxifying processes. Reflexology can also increase the flow of energy through the body to the areas affected by illness or stress.
Reflexology usually feels good and is very relaxing but you may experience soreness in the congested reflex areas. As the condition improves, the soreness will decrease over time.
Reflexology has also been known to be a great modality for those who have autoimmune conditions or diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Scleroderma, inflammatory arthritis, etc., cancer patients to help manage their symptoms, and those who cannot tolerate the pressure of a massage – especially those with fibromyalgia or those who have an aversion to touch.
This will not be just a foot massage. It is a step towards a path to promote better health and well-being overall for yourself. Stress reduction, lowering blood pressure, and increasing circulation can be just some of the benefits you experience after.
