Promoting Good Health Through Your Feet -- The Benefits of Reflexology
May 1, 2014
Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that your body is reflected in your feet. Through skillful application of pressure to specific points on the feet, reflexology creates positive changes elsewhere in the body.
Practiced in diverse cultures such as Egypt, India, Japan, and China for centuries, Reflexology is much more than a good foot massage! Reflexology promotes the body’s ability to adjust and balance during times of stress.
Beyond relaxation, Reflexology has been shown to improve circulation. Increasing circulation boosts the supply of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles and other tissues and speeds up the elimination of waster products, such as lactic acid and stress hormones. This, in turn, reduces muscle tension and soreness, decreases healing time for injuries, and reduces swelling. Reflexology also helps promote the body’s natural healing abilities and can boost immune function. For either preventative care or in response to acute distress, Reflexology has been observed to create physical changes that can bring about balance, ease, and healing.
Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset the body's natural balance.
The benefits of Reflexology include:
Relief from Health Concern Symptoms
Increased Blood and Lymphatic Circulation
Reduce Blood Pressure and Cholesterol
Beneficial for Post-Operative Recovery and Pain Reduction
Enhancement of Medical Care (ex. cancer, phantom limb pain, and hemodialysis patients)
Mental Health Care (ex. depression, anxiety, Post- traumatic stress disorder)
