The Benefits Of Reflexology


Reflexology is a type of massage therapy that focuses on your hands, feet and ears. These body parts are connected to the nervous system.


Therefore, when the therapist applies pressure to these areas, energy is stimulated along the nerve channels and elicits a sense of balance throughout your whole body.


Why Book A Reflexology Session?


Improve Mental Health


Reflexology helps to reduce anxiety and depression because of the endorphins it helps your body to release and its soothing effect on your nervous system. Hormones such as serotonin improve your mood which can counteract stress or any other negative feelings you are experiencing.


Reduce Foot Pain


Due to the nature of reflexology treatment, it is extremely effective for relieving foot pain. This is especially useful for individuals who suffer from foot conditions such as injuries, neuropathy, arthritis, collapsed arches, excessively high arches or flat feet.


Improve Strength Of Immune System


Reflexology massages help to increase circulation to your lymphatic system, bone marrow, spleen and thymus. Hence, your immune system will function optimally and become more capable of dealing with illnesses.


Increase Relaxation


Compared to other massage therapies, reflexology is much less intrusive. During every session, there is no need to strip off the majority of your clothing. The only body part that needs to be exposed is your feet. This suits those who are self-conscious about their physiques and do not feel comfortable undressing down to their underwear.


As a result, reflexology sessions tend to be very relaxing as clients can enjoy the massage without any fears.


Not to mention, reflexology therapy stimulates over 7,000 nerve endings which activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This increases the chances of you falling asleep during the session and waking up feeling refreshed.


Elevate Energy Levels


Reflexology helps to unblock congested organs and remove toxins from the body. This leads to an elevation in energy levels after the day of the session. Over time the increase in energy becomes more consistent as your body operates from a better level of homeostasis.
