Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is to relax
Reflexology is an ancient practice of applying pressure to distinct reflexes and zones on the feet. The feet have been mapped to anatomically represent the whole body. Stimulating and holding these specific areas has been shown to be beneficial to your health and wellbeing.
The benefits of reflexology are individual to the person receiving treatment. The practice can be used for a specific health concern or as a therapy for general health and mental wellbeing. The benefits can include help with sleeping issues, pain management, stimulating the lymphatic system and relieving muscle tension. It can also be valuable as it allows you to have a period of calm and stillness which may help relieve stress.
A treatment takes an hour and involves the feet being methodically massaged working from the right foot to the left. Reflex points may be held if you feel sensitivity during the treatment. Sensitivity suggests a possible imbalance to the related body part. Relaxation is built into the treatment and you should leave the session feeling relaxed, calm and stimulated.
