Foot Reflexology can help!

Who Can Benefit?

Many people can benefit from Reflexology! An obvious choice is people who have foot problems or pain, including plantar fasciitis, bunions and swollen feet. People who stand on their feet for hours at a time or who wear tight shoes or high heels find it very soothing. Reflexology can help speed up healing in sprained ankles and running injuries.

Foot Reflexology can work alongside conventional medicine to help you function better. The ability of reflexology to relax the nervous system makes it great for people who have a lot of stress in their life, including those who have insomnia and nervous tension. It can also help with post-operative pain, and chronic pain, such as headaches.

People who have a chronic condition, such as Diabetes, kidney disease or lung disease (such as asthma), arthritis, or high blood pressure can be helped because Reflexology helps the organs of the body to function more efficiently. Diabetes is an example of a condition that can affect many parts of the body: not only the pancreas, but also the heart (leading to possible heart attack), eyes (leading to decreased sight or blindness), kidneys (possible kidney failure), nerves (peripheral neuropathy in the feet and hands) and blood vessels (high blood pressure and possible stroke). Reflexology on a regular basis, alongside regular check-ups and medical care, can keep the organs healthier and may prevent some of the complications of Diabetes.

Case studies have shown that reflexology can be an effective complementary therapy for many conditions, including asthma, hypertension, headaches, digestive problems, gout, and nervous system disorders. Modern medical research methods are confirming the effectiveness of reflexology. Ultrasound and thermography demonstrate increased blood circulation to target organs (e.g. kidney) when specific reflex zones (e.g. kidney) are massaged. (Massage Magazine, December 2000). In another study, Magnetic Resonance Imaging shows increased activity in the temple area of the brain when the temple reflex zone is stimulated.
