Foot reflexology is a therapy that has been around for thousands of years, many people think that foot reflexology is just another word for a foot massage but that is not correct! The concept of reflexology is based on the belief that pressing different points on your feet and also on your hands corresponds to a different area of your body. For example, if you want to try to stimulate your brain, it’s very hard to do that by hand, as your skull protects your brain. So reflexology believes that if you’ll try to put some gentle pressure on your big toe, it corresponds to the brain, thus releasing headaches or any pressure from your head.
Medical evidence proves that foot reflexology helps reduce stress and anxiety, lifts your mood, and improves general well-being. Many people have also reported that foot reflexology has helped them boost their immune system, clear up sinuses, remove neck and back problems, and correct hormonal imbalances.
Here are some of the most important advantages of foot reflexology and reasons for scheduling your foot reflexology appointment.
Reflexology can flood the neural pathways with calm, causing a state of peace and tranquility in the body and mind. This promotes relaxation. This physiological change results in stress reduction.
Reflexology therapy is widely used to treat sleep issues while also reducing stress. This is done by assisting your body in getting back to a more balanced, calm state while also assisting in re-establishing a healthy Circadian rhythm, which is necessary for getting enough sleep.
Stimulates the Nervous System
Open neural pathways have numerous positive effects on our central nervous system. The brain’s increased capacity for processing information fundamentally speeds up cognitive processes, which in turn hasten physical responses and enhance memory. The entire brain can work more swiftly and efficiently as a whole.
Migraine and headache relief
People who are in pain frequently seek reflexology because it can lessen the severity of migraines and headaches by boosting blood flow and reducing muscle tightness. Stress and psychological factors frequently manifest as migraine symptoms, thus it is also possible to treat headaches that are brought on by stress.
The improvement in circulation throughout the body, which means that blood and oxygen are cycled through the body more effectively, is likely one of reflexology’s best-known and most thoroughly studied effects.
As a result of this advantage, oxygen can reach critical organ systems, enhancing their performance and raising metabolism.
Boosts Energy Levels
Reflexology has the potential to boost metabolism and energy production by coordinating the actions of the organ and muscle systems. Reflexology sessions can therefore aid in reviving both your body and mind.
Reduces Plantar Fasciitis Pain
Reflexology has the potential to reduce the suffering brought on by plantar fasciitis. Reflexology is advantageous because it uses pressure point methods to relieve stress, which reduces the heel discomfort brought on by plantar fasciitis. A skilled foot massage is a natural remedy for plantar fasciitis.
Rejuvenates Nerve Activity
Some of our body’s nerve endings lose sensitivity as we become older (more so in the extremities). In a one-hour reflexology treatment, more than seven thousand distinct nerve endings are thought to be stimulated, which inevitably improves nerve responsiveness and functioning.
Opening and purging brain connections enhance overall performance and lower toxin levels throughout the body.
