Reflexology for your Health & Well Being
Reflexology is based on the Chinese principle that vital areas of the body, including the organs are reflected in the soles of the feet. Through thousands of connecting nerve endings the condition and health of the organs can not only be read but also stimulated.
Illness, stress and today's busy lives can place our body in a state of imbalance sometimes blocking vital energy pathways that run through our body and preventing the body from functioning effectively. Using the thumb and forefinger, precise non-invasive gentle massage movements on specific parts of the feet work to stimulate, unblock and rebalance any areas of the body that are congested or imbalanced. Thus helping the body to return to a state of good health and vitality.
Reflexology does not claim to diagnose, treat or prescribe but has shown to be effective in helping to alleviate or improve a range of conditions including:
Reflexology not only allows your body to enter a state of deep relaxation but by stimulating the nerves through gentle massage also encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways allowing the body to return to its natural rhythms.
By applying a gentle pressure to key areas of the feet, hands or face, calming messages are sent from the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system signalling the body to adjust the tension level. This enhances your overall state of relaxation. When your body is at rest, your mind can relax.
The lymphatic system plays a major role in our immune system and defends us against disease and infection. By stimulating key lymphatic reflexes our body will have an increased ability to fight off illness and disease, allowing us to stay healthier for longer.
Blood carries vital nutrients around the body and aids in the efficient removal of toxins and waste products from the body. Reflexology increases the flow and movement of the circulatory system by decreasing stress and tension held in the body.
Reducing stress is crucial in pain management. By working the whole body and creating a balance within the body and by stimulating the production of endorphins, the body's natural painkiller, reflexology can help to reduce the feeling of pain. This is done by gently massaging the pituitary and brain reflexes to help encourage the brain to produce more endorphins.
Apart from the holistic benefits to the entire body system, ZoneFacelift and Facial Reflexology are also beneficial in helping to promote the production of new skin tissue, stimulate facial nerves, blood flow and muscles and strengthen the layers of the facial tissue improving skin tone.
