Did you know? There are 7,200 nerve endings located in each foot. These nerves make up specific areas called reflex points. By stimulating or reflexing these nerves a message is then sent through the nervous system, via the spinal cord, up into the brain. This allows more oxygen and blood flow to the cells and helps break up any congestion in the nervous system, stimulating the body's natural healing process. It is important to recognize that the body does the healing.
Reflexology is designed to put the body back into a balanced state of health. Therefore, you may experience an increase in your energy level the same day as your treatment or the following day or two after you have rested and had a good night sleep. General body aches and pains are usually diminished because of the increase in circulation.
Who can benefit from Reflexology treatment? Anyone can benefit from reflexology, regardless of age or sex.
Reflexology is exceptional at:
* managing migraines
* reversing neuropathy
* enhancing sleep
* stimulating the sinuses
* relieving edema
* speeding up healing
