Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the head, feet, and hands that relate to all parts of the body. When the reflexes are stimulated, the body’s natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones. Reflexology induces the relaxation response, which counters stress and activates the release of endorphins into the bloodstream. It also improves circulation.
By improving circulation, reflexology helps to cleanse the body of toxins. It also aids the exchange of oxygen, nutrients, and essential chemical metabolites among the cells of the body.
Benefits of Reflexology include;
- Reduces pain
- Improves blood flow
- Aids post-operative recovery:
- Benefits mental health
- Complements cancer care
- Eases pregnancy, delivery and post-partum effects
