REFLEXOLOGY is an alternative, natural treatment for a wide variety of conditions. A typical session will stimulate more than 7,000 nerve endings, which increases their function and reactivity. Opening and cleaning out nerve pathways can help improve function and flexibility of many areas of the body.
BENEFITS OF REFLEXOLOGY increased energy, boosts circulation, induces a deep state of relaxation, eliminates toxins, stimulates the central nervous system, speeds recovery after injury or surgery, helps relieve sleep disorders, reduces depression, and relieves pain. Furthermore, it can help ease the treatment of various cancers and helps to soothe the pains of pregnancy, even those occurring after the baby is born.
Reflexology is a good treatment to help those suffering from lymphedema (swelling of extremities) after surgery, as it helps to improve circulation and lymphatic flow. A reflexologist can work on the reflex points specific to the affected area. In some cases the affected extremity lymphedema can be very painful, reflexology is very gentle and effective and in such cases it is a good complement to the lymphatic drainage massage.
In general, reflexology helps improve circulation and lymph flow, which benefits all systems and organs of the body and helps to achieve deep relaxation and improve breathing and mobility.
