Reflexology and Relaxation
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is popular and given on the Face, Hands, and Feet. Reflexologists use fingertip pressure to connect with specific areas on the face, hands, or feet, known as reflexes. Stimulating these reflexes creates a pathway of energy that encourages the body's natural healing processes to achieve Homeostasis. Homeostasis is a Greek word that describes a person's body and mind as balanced, with all systems of the body working in harmony with each other.
An ideal world we don't have or live in. Life is fast-paced, it changes and throws up challenges, discomfort, and fear, moment by moment. Stress levels rise and if they are not managed, the body and mind begin to experience stress responses that have a significant, negative impact on Wellbeing.
Reflexology is considered to be a therapy that complements traditional medicine. It is recommended by some members of the medical profession to promote relaxation that assists the reduction of anxiety and depression. It is recommended as a therapy for palliative care and sometimes following trauma and surgery.
Reflexologists do not claim to cure, they do not diagnose but they are Purveyors of Wellbeing.
Reflexology is thought to be helpful for all age groups and many presenting symptoms of disharmony.
Ultimately the healing effect comes from the relaxation response. Reflexology is great for promoting relaxation.
Reflexology is especially helpful to women by helping to balance their normal/ abnormal hormonal changes that may occur with their Menstrual Cycles, Pregnancy, Peri-Menopause, Menopause, and Post Menopausal years.
