Within this blog, it will focus on the key benefits that a person will get from reflexology. There are many advantages and health benefits from reflexology, and we have provided you with details regarding the importance of reflexology and how it has become a popular method of treatment.
Reflexology is a popular variety of alternative therapy; it is non-intrusive and works by placing pressure on different points of your feet and perhaps extending into the lower leg or hands.
It is believed that these particular points have links to other areas or organs within the body and by placing pressure on these points any tension or congestion in the correlating area will be helped.
Whilst many people think of reflexology as a massage, it should be viewed as more than “just a massage”. It is a treatment for a range of problems as well as providing a boost to our general well-being.
What are the Benefits of Reflexology?
Reflexology is believed to have a variety of different benefits and effects on our health and well-being, and is often used alongside more conventional medical approaches to help with particular disorders, illnesses and issues.
Reflexology helps with the following medical issues:
- Sinus issues;
- Digestive problems;
- Back pain;
- Circulatory problems.
Reflexology releases not only physical tensions but toxins that may have built up within our bodies; stimulating nerve pathways and relaxing muscles.
It also provides relief from stress and anxiety that may be felt during everyday life, and provides the patient with an improved feeling of health, well-being and relaxation.
Any age can benefit from reflexology; from new-borns, to women who are pregnant, right up to those who are receiving end of life care.
