Therapeutic Reflexology Explained

What is Therapeutic Reflexology and how does it work?

 

Therapeutic Reflexology is a specialized technique-massage of the feet, used to stimulate mapped-out reflexes that are linked   to the organs of the body.  By applying pressure to these organ-specific reflexes, it stimulates the body’s own  healing potential by:

  • Gives total relaxation: Reflexology slows down your heart rate, lowers blood pressure, slows your breathing rate, encourages deep breathing, reduces stress, relieves depression, and reduces heart attack & stroke risk.

  • Detoxification and elimination of toxins: This helps you in several different ways; boost energy, stronger immune system, anti-aging, weight loss and improved sense of well-being.

  •  Improves nerve conduction:  Reflexology stimulates over 7,000 nerves in the feet and encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways. Reflexology interrupts pain pathways and reduces pain.

  • Promotes psychological well-being When stressed, our body become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology reduces stress and provides total relaxation. Once the reflexology massage starts, the relaxation begins, which is confirmed by EEG brain activity.

  •  Relief any form of pain—from migraine to joint pain.

  •  Improved circulation of blood and energy:  Free flow of blood to the entire body is required for transporting oxygen and nutrients to the cells as well as removes metabolic wastes and toxins. Many studies show that reflexology increases blood flow and relaxes the overall body, including cardiovascular system, which helps to pump blood naturally.

  •  Improved immune role: Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system, thus reduces infection risk. Reflexology helps with the removal of toxins and induces the production of endorphins, leading to an increase in immune power and sense of well-being.
