Foot Massage or Reflexology is a holistic system of treatment|
Whether you have a chronic or acute health problem or you are simply looking for a way to reduce tension and promote well-being, reflexology may be the answer to your problem. Although it works on a similar principle to acupuncture, reflexology is entirely non-invasive. Instead of using needles, simple pressure is applied through the fingers to the minute reflex points in and around the feet and hands. This, in turn, has a stimulating effect on specific parts of the body.
Reflexology is a completely safe form of therapy, as well as being a very relaxing and pleasant experience. The purpose of a course of treatment is to normalize the body's functioning, to help to break down tension and alleviate stress, and to improve nerve functioning and blood supply throughout the body.
Reflexology sessions are primarily intended to improve the body's circulation and assist the body in speeding up the elimination of waste products, so that toxins do not have a chance to build up to harmful levels in the liver, kidney, or bowel. Reflexology can also help you to control the perception of pain by stimulating the release of endorphins - the body's natural painkillers - from the pituitary gland in the brain into the bloodstream. But reflexology works best when it is used to treat the whole body, rather than specific conditions. In this way, it improves all of the body's functions, and this, in turn, encourages the natural healing process to work more speedily and efficiently.
