Maybe you’re stressed out from work or school assignments. Maybe you suffer from overwhelming migraines. Or, maybe you do physical labor that causes uncomfortable back pain that occasionally takes you out of the game. Whatever the case may be, there is a solution that can naturally reduce stress, pain, tension, and discomfort.
You’ve probably heard of “pressure points,” especially if you suffer from conditions like back and neck pain or recurrent headaches. Special points on your hands and feet are the focus of reflexology. These points are thought to match up with other areas of the body and, when appropriate pressure is applied, tension and soreness are decreased by a release of healing energy. This process is summed up in reflexology, a branch of massage therapy dedicated to promoting health and wellbeing—naturally.
There are many reasons that people opt for reflexology, including:
- Stress management
- Anxiety reduction
- Post-surgery pain relief
- Back pain
- Difficulty sleeping
If you’re seeking a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for any of the common problems listed above, consider reflexology. Those who have received reflexology therapy generally have a positive response.
During the session, your massage therapist specially trained in reflexology will not apply more pressure than necessary. If you feel any discomfort, immediately let the massage therapist know so the pressure can be adjusted and you can benefit fully from the therapy. With firm and precise pressure, energy is transferred to the area of your body that’s bothering you. This can help you feel relief in your area of discomfort as well as more calm and relaxed.
You may be wondering, how is reflexology different from the average hand or foot massage? Well, the purpose of a regular hand or foot massage is usually to improve blood circulation and promote relaxation. However, a reflexologist is specially trained in applying pressure to the pressure points mentioned above for whole-body therapy.
