Reflexology is a treatment performed on the pressure points of the hands and feet. While the treatment officially dates back to 1913 the principles are very much based on Ancient Chinese medical philosophy. This is something that can massively benefit your health both in the short and long term. Here are just a few examples of this treatment can do for you.
The theory is that applying pressure to points in the body allows for a better blood flow. This means that the nervous system in effect rights itself, allowing you to find balance in your body.
Reflexology can be used to detect problems before they occur. A reflexologist will be able to look into this and use the treatment for this. The treatment can also be used as a complementary medicine alongside other treatments.
Anyone can benefit
Simply put everyone has the same setup in their body- therefore anyone can potentially benefit from a reflexology treatment. It may seem strange but organs and glands are connected through the hands and feet, therefore the treatment can apply to anyone.
No serious side effects
One of the big problems with treatments for various illnesses is that they can suffer from side effects. Reflexology can be pleasant and relaxing but any side effects tend to be feeling more relaxed than anything particularly serious.
The relaxing part of reflexology is ideal for people suffering from problems sleeping- people often feel a trance-like sensation that makes it easier for them to go to sleep.
Reduce pain and stiffness
Because this treatment targets specific pressure points you can get to the root of any pain and stiffness.
