Foot Reflexology is an ancient holistic healing technique involving the systematic and manual stimulation of accupressure points located on the feet.
Reflexology has many health benefits*
Reflexology is known to open neural pathways and flood the nervous system with neuron activity which puts the body in a more relaxed state. By delivering an abundance of relaxation in your system, reflexology can induce a state of calm throughout your body and mind. Reflexology can be used to cure sleep disorders such as insomnia and help your body get back to its normal, healthy circadian rhythms.
IMPROVEMENT OF NERVE FUNCTIONS
As bodies age, the nerve endings become less and less sensitive in the extremity parts of our body. Opening up and cleaning out neural pathways can help improve the functionality and flexibility of nerves and cells in various organs in the body. Neural passageways are essentially like muscles, it is extremely beneficial and crucial to your health to keep them active.
IMPROVEMENT IN BRAIN ACTIVITY
By stimulating your nerves and opening your neural pathways, information flows much faster and more effectively to your brain which would help your brain to handle the processes of information faster which would result in quicker cognitive and physical reactions helping to boost memory.
INCREASED BLOOD CIRCULATION
Effectively the most well-known benefit of reflexology is an improvement in blood circulation throughout your body, which means that blood along with oxygen gets cycled and delivered through the body more efficiently. Improvement in circulation also means more oxygen reaching the vital organ systems which optimize their functioning and further increases metabolism. The deliverance of oxygen through the body also results in faster healing and re-growth of damaged cells.
By improving blood circulation reflexology improves bladder function and helps to reduce urinary tract issues. This results in a more efficient system of eliminating toxins and other foreign elements, thereby protecting your body from various diseases and health conditions that can often happen as a result of a compromised urinary system.
BOOSTING METABOLISM & ENERGY
Reflexology can improve internal organ function providing a boost to metabolism and energy levels.
One of the most common applications of reflexology is alleviating the severity of tension, migraine, and cluster headaches.
RELIEVING DISCOMFORT FROM MENSTRUATION & PREGNANCY
Reflexology can be very beneficial for women menstruating or during pregnancy - especially with regard to labor lengths, pain during labor as well as postpartum recovery time. Additionally, it can reduce the chances of post-partum depression, help the body heal itself, and get back to its normal metabolic activity faster.
* Although reflexology is an ancient form of treatment and has been effectively used for centuries, it is important to note that it should be considered as a supplemental treatment to formal medical advice of your doctor and prescribed medicinal treatments.
