Few of us take good care of our feet but they are extremely important to our overall sense of wellbeing. Reflexology involves the application of specific pressure techniques (similar to accupressure) to the reflexes of the feet which may represent all the organs and systems of the body. Stimulation of the reflexes in the correct manner can be very relaxing. Improved relaxation can effect the whole body bringing improved energy levels. Reflexology is a gentle natural way to optimise health and wellbeing.
Some of the benefits of reflexology include:
- Boosts the immune system
- Improved sleep
- Improved mood
- Relaxes muscles
- Improves energy levels
- Lowers stress levels
- Reduced tension
- Reduced pain levels
As reflexology is a non invasive treatment it is suitable for both young and old.
Many people find it so relaxing they fall asleep while having treatment.
A new study suggests that reflexology can reduce pain levels. If you would like to read the study Visit the nursing times website.
Reflexology can also be used during pregnancy.
