PROMOTING HEALTH AND RELAXATION
RESTORING AND MAINTAINING MOBILITY AND FUNCTION
Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to the feet. Based on a theory that these body parts are connected to certain organs and body systems, by applying pressure to these parts, offers a range of health benefits. A reflexologist can help to calm the central nervous system, promoting relaxation and other benefits just like any form of massage.
They also found that the body’s entire nervous system tends to adjust to outside factors, including touch. The brain creates pain as a subjective experience. Sometimes, the brain reacts to physical pain, but in other cases, it may create pain in response to emotional or mental distress. By applying pressure to these areas on the feet it can reduce pain through calming touch, which may help to improve someone’s mood and reduce stress, anxiety and pain, helping to improve overall general well-being.
