Reflexology is a method of natural healing, which has been practiced for centuries. It is the gentle application of pressure to specific points upon the feet, through which positive, predictable changes occur within the body. The body’s image is reflected onto the foot in miniature, with each foot representing one-half of the body. Each organ or body part is located in the corresponding position. Reflexology helps to induce the alpha state of relaxation…the most serene level of relaxation at which healing can take place. Reflexology is not, however, a substitute for medical care. A complete reflexology session will address and benefit the entire body.
Some benefits of Reflexology include:
• Deep relaxation
• Promotes the body’s ability to adjust and balance during times of stress
• Reduces tension
• Reduces muscle pain and spasm
• Increased energy
• Reduces stress and anxiety
• Improved circulation
• Improved immune function, skin tone and concentration
• Renewed physical and emotional strength
• Promotes natural self-healing
Reflexology is not only relaxing; it can be particularly helpful in dealing with many long term, recurring conditions, that many of us think we just have to accept as normal.
These are just a few of the more common conditions that have been successfully helped with Reflexology: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, PMT/PMS Allergies, Migraines, High Blood Pressure, Sciatic Pain, Arthritis, Insomnia, Asthma, Stress related problems, Menopausal problems, Hay Fever, Sinusitis, Menstrual Problems, Back Problems.
