During the 3rd week of September, or September 21-27, 2020 this year, Reflexology Therapists around the world work to raise awareness about reflexology. However, I’m declaring the entire month as Reflexology Awareness Month!
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. It takes a holistic approach to healing what ails you. Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the head, feet and hands that relate to all parts of the body, and through the application of appropriate pressure and gentle massage to these reflexes it activates positive responses to the body’s organs and systems. The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally.
Reflexology Therapists do not claim to cure, diagnose, or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, considering the physical and non-physical factors that affect your health. Typically after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you’ll feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better, and find your mood and sense of well-being improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too, however, this happens on an individual basis.
The 5 key benefits of reflexology are:
- Relaxation for mind and body
- Improves circulation
- Balances the entire body’s condition
- Alleviates pain and other discomforts
- Boosts the immune system
Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS, and sinusitis. Reflexology may be one of the best ways to mitigate the constant stresses and strains imposed by modern life.
As a Reflexology Therapist, my goal is to help people step forward to better health each day. I try my best to help you become aware of how it’s possible to live happy, healthy and pain-free through this ancient healing art. Through my work, I work on restoring the souls of the community!
