How can reflexology help you?
This ancient form of massage has been shown to promote relaxation, improved wellness, and relieve pain. If you are suffering from mild anxiety, headaches, plantar fasciitis or other chronic pain reflexology may be beneficial. As a bonus it will leave you feeling, pampered, relaxed and energised.
Encourages Relaxation – Reflexology can flood the neural pathways with relaxation, inducing a state of peace and tranquillity within the body and mind resulting in a reduction of stress, promote deep sleep and helping restore a healthy circadian rhythm.
Relieves Headaches – Reflexology has been shown to be beneficial for anyone suffering chronic or acute pain. Reflexology can reduce the severity of headaches by increasing blood flow, relieving muscle tension and reducing stress. Depending on the cause of the headaches specific tension points in the feet can be targeted to address your health concerns.
Revitalizes Nerve Function – Nerve endings lose sensitivity in parts of our body as we age, especially in our brain, feet and hands. Reflexology provides stimulation to more than 7,000 different nerve endings, naturally increasing nerve functioning and reactivity.
Improves Circulation – Probably the most well-known and verified benefit of reflexology is an improvement in circulation throughout the entire body, which means blood and oxygen are being cycled throughout the body more effectively.
Increases Energy Levels – By aligning functions of organ and muscle systems, reflexology has the potential to energizing your body and mind.
Relieves Plantar Fasciitis Pain – Reflexology can help ease the pain and discomfort caused by plantar fasciitis. Reflexology is beneficial as it uses pressure point techniques to release tension, relieving the heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis and improving circulation.
