The good things about Reflexology is that has several benefits that can affect the human body.
Reflexology is a Chinese tradition which is based on the principle that certain areas on the feet and hands have nerve endings corresponding to different body parts. These nerve endings are called pressure points which can be rubbed to mirror their effects on these body organs.
Let’s explore some of these benefits.
Clinical research has proven that reflexology can have positive effects in reducing symptoms of certain medical conditions.
It helps bring the body under its natural state and unblocks pathways and energizes the body.
Pressure points have a role in releasing stress leading to a relaxed body.
Reflexology is effective in getting to the root of pain which can minimize the effects of pain and illness.
It also helps to promote recovery of injuries that stress the entire body, improving the general health of the body. Tender parts on the feet and hands can indicate that the body is out of balance.
The feet work hard for us the whole day and are generally a neglected body part. They can gather tension like any other body part. Thus reflexology helps to promote circulation and eases the tension in the muscles.
