Do you have aching feet or suffer from headaches, insomnia, or other health issues? Our feet are not simply tools for walking--they transmit motor and sensory information to the brain. Reflexology theorizes that the complex network of over 7,000 nerve endings (reflex points) on each foot link to organs, glands, and body systems. Using firm pressure and specific finger and thumb movements on reflex points, Foot Reflexology works with the nervous system to normalize body functions and trigger a healing response.
Foot Reflexology has been shown to promote blood circulation and lymph flow; remove toxins; increase joint flexibility; and relieve anxiety and tension. Some of the key benefits associated with stimulating the reflex areas are relaxation; stress management; and reduced acute and chronic pain.
Other benefits include relief from: diabetic neuropathy; PMS; high blood pressure; digestive disorders; back pain; foot/muscle spasms; Restless Leg Syndrome; and plantar fasciitis.
(NOTE: Reflexology is not a foot massage and does not cure or diagnose disease.)
