It is widely acknowledged in the medical world that as much as 80% of diseases are caused by stress. Because stress lowers the immunity the body will be more susceptible to infections. With reflexology, accumulated stress and tension in the body will be relieved. Reflexology is an excellent relaxation therapy and therefore helps alleviate the symptoms of stress, thus reducing the detrimental effects on our health.
Conditions which have been shown, through medical research projects, to benefit from reflexology treatments:
Anxiety Cancer Hypertension Constipation Type 2 Diabetes Endometriosis Mellitus IBS Headaches Asthma Back Pain Lumber Strain Migraine Depression Stress Pregnancy and Labour Premenstrual Tension Skin Conditions Rheumatoid Arthritis Multiple Sclerosis Menopause Cancer Insomnia Panic Attacks Bells Palsy
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves a pressure technique using the thumbs and fingers on the reflex areas found in the feet and hands. Reflexology is extremely effective and is based on the principle that reflexes in the feet and hands correspond to each organ and structure in the body, and are linked to those organs by energy channels, zones or meridians.
When illness occurs in the body, the corresponding energy channels become blocked, and Reflexology is applied to destroy these blockages, allowing the energy to flow freely again, so restoring the body's natural balance and therefore good health.
