There are more than 7,000 nerve endings in each of your feet. And one quarter of all the bones in the human body reside there. So it’s a good idea to give them the attention they deserve. Foot reflexology massage combines elements of traditional Swedish and sports massages. It can be deeply relaxing and beneficial for everyone – not just those suffering from foot or ankle pain.
Reflexology doesn’t just treat the feet. In addition to relieving toe pain, ankle strain, and other strains and pains you might be feeling, reflexology can help reduce stress throughout the entire body.
Reflexology is a natural healing art and is the practice of applying precise hand and finger pressure to specific points on the feet to stimulate the body’s own healing system. These points are believed to correspond to specific organs and structures in the body. Reflexology is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment.
The holistic understanding, study and practise of treating points and areas in the feet and hands that relate to corresponding parts of the body. Using precise hand and finger techniques, a reflexology treatment may improve circulation, induce relaxation and enable homeostasis. This encourages healing systems to be activated to maintain wellbeing.
How does it work?
Founded upon the existence of “reflex” areas on the feet that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts throughout the body
Applying pressure to these reflex points can promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways
A scientific explanation of the effects is that the pressure sends a signal to the nervous system to balance endorphins and chemicals to help reduce local pain and stress
Restoring the body’s equilibrium and enhance the normal functioning of organs, glands and general systems
- Improves the circulation of both blood and lymph.
- Balances the body’s system and organs.
- Induces deep relaxation.
- Helps alleviate insomnia.
- Stimulating more than 7,000 nerve endings in the feet.
- Provides a more efficient removal of toxins and impurities.
