With life being as fast-paced as it is, it’s easy for the body to fall foul of stress. In these times, it’s even more important to protect the functioning of the immune system, which is under constant attack. A gentle, nurturing therapy such as hand reflexology works in unison with the body to help protect and correct physical and physiological imbalances, through the stimulation of the nervous system. It strengthens the connection between mind and body – relieving stress and promoting deep relaxation. Many people say they sleep better following a session of hand reflexology and this, in turn, increases healing potential. However, the benefits of reflexology go far beyond relaxation, as many health conditions can be improved by utilising the easy to use techniques of the therapy.
Health benefits are extensive and include (but are not limited to):
- Reduced constipation
- Easing of shoulder aches
- Alleviation of headaches
- Improvement of blood circulation
- Alleviation of back pain
- Reduction in allergy symptoms
- Opening and relieving of sinuses
Hand reflexology is a complex but powerful healing therapy that encourages whole body health and well being. By working various parts of the hand, you stimulate meridians, the spine, the lungs, the shoulders, thyroid, stomach, and so on.
