Foot reflexology is based on the premise that there are reflexes in the feet that correspond to all parts of the body and that stimulating these reflexes brings about physiological changes. Reflexology is an ancient healing technique, and evidence that reflexology was first practiced around 2500 to 2300 B.C. was found in the form of carvings on the wall of the tomb of an Egyptian doctor.
BENEFITS OF FOOT REFLEXOLOGY
Foot reflexology is effective in bringing about a deep state of relaxation
Reflexology can improve blood circulation in the feet and throughout the body.
Reduction of Pain
Foot reflexology is effective for pain management. When reflexology is applied to the feet, more endorphins are produced to block pain signals to the brain. Endorphins are painkillers that are stronger than morphine. People who are experiencing pain may get significant relief through reflexology.
Foot reflexology can bring balance when constipation is an issue. Stimulation of the intestine, colon and other corresponding reflexes can make elimination easier and return it to a normal state.
Because oxygen is required to keep the cells of the body in a healthy state, foot reflexology can help to deliver vital oxygen to brain cells. Stimulation of the brain reflexes on the feet improves circulation of blood to the head. Foot reflexology, when administered routinely, will help improve a forgetful mind.
Reflexology can make your relationship stronger. Touching the feet can be sensual and relaxing, and reflexology can put your partner in a state of relaxation that will heighten the lovemaking experience. Giving your partner a reflexology session is a wonderful expression of love and caring.
