What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a holistic healing practice that involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities.
This ancient therapeutic technique is based on the belief that these areas, known as reflex points, correspond to different organs, glands, and systems throughout the body.
By applying targeted pressure to these points, Reflexologists aim to restore balance and harmony within the body, promoting overall well-being. Reflexology is deeply rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and has also been influenced by various other ancient healing practices from different cultures around the world.
How can it help?
Potential benefits include:
1) Stress reduction - promoting a sense of calm and relaxation in the body which can lead to improved sleep patterns, increased energy levels, and enhanced mood
2) Improved circulation which can aid in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells. This promotes better overall health and supports the body's natural healing processes.
3) Decreased pain and discomfort by stimulating reflex points. This can be beneficial for individuals with chronic pain conditions, injuries, or specific ailments.
4) Improved immune system and the body's ability to detoxify.
5) Relaxation and self-care
