Reflexology Is Much More Than Just a Foot Massage

 

Reflexology is a technique in which a qualified therapist uses pressure applied by their thumb and fingers to points on the hands, feet or even ears. These areas are the reflex points for the body. These reflex points connect to specific areas of the body, and when they are massaged relief from pain, or an imbalance associated with this specific area, is gently removed. When your body system is not working properly, deposits of calcium, minerals, and uric acid may form in the reflex points which eventually hampers the proper circulation of blood. A skilled reflexologist can use massage techniques to break down these deposits and help restore normal functioning.

On another note, studies show that 75% of ailments and disorders are caused by stress. The first thing that you can do to prevent stress-related illnesses is to rest and relax. Here’s where reflexology comes in. Focusing on the reflex points can help your body relax by normalizing your blood flow and calming the nerves, allowing the body to receive the full reflexology benefits.

Your hands and feet have countless nerve endings which are all connected to the different parts of your body. Once you locate and massage the right areas of your feet or hands, you can stimulate the affected areas in your body. Although reflexology may also be applied to the hands, most reflexologists prefer to treat the feet because they are bigger and are more convenient to massage.
