Reflexology is an ancient and natural healing art that emerges out of China and other regions of Southeast Asia. The techniques used are aimed at giving relief to all sorts of aches and pains by applying pressure to specific reflex points on the hands, feet, and toes that directly correspond to the body’s organs and glands. It can be used to help prevent the flu, the common cold, and may work to relieve respiratory problems. There are specific reflexology techniques that can be applied to alleviate excess mucus, headaches, coughs and other symptoms brought on by colds, flu and bronchitis.
A reflexology session designed for respiratory relief might be worth scheduling if you suffer from smokers’ cough and asthma. Asthma is defined as a medical condition brought on by the narrowing of the bronchial tubes in the respiratory system. This is generally caused by an inflammation due to allergic reaction to something in the environment, an infection, or by allergens in food or air. Symptoms of asthma include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, heavy coughing, and tightness in the chest. How do you get relief? A good reflexology massage helps you to fight stress and to stimulate blood flow thereby improving your circulation. Seek out a reflexology session to acquire some of the relaxing and stimulating effects it brings. The main areas that will be focused on in a session are the pressure or reflex points for the nervous and respiratory systems as well as the lymphatic system.
