Reflexology of Foot, Hand, Face and Ears
More than 170 studies of Reflexology have been documented, with 90% showing a positive result (Kunz & Kunz 2010, reflexology-research.com).
Reflexology has been known to:
- Reduce stress, induce deep relaxation – unmanaged stress causes the body’s defenses to breakdown and become susceptible to illness. It is estimated that 99% of illness is due to stress. Proper reflexology techniques stimulate the body to expel harmful toxins, restoring organ function.
- Improve circulation, cleanse body of toxins – blood needs to flow freely in the body to carry oxygen and nutrients to all cells and remove toxins. Reflexology releases the tension that tightens the cardiovascular system and restricts blood flow. All organs function better as a result.
- Revitalizes energy and improves mental alertness – Relaxation revitalizes the body and supplies it with renewed strength and energy on all levels.
- Relieve pain and improve physical performance – injuries can inhibit athletes' performance, decreasing not only physical abilities, but mental focus. Reflexology helps to correct both mental and physical challenges, including sciatica, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and numerous other common ailments.
Other conditions that can benefit from reflexology include acid reflux, anxiety, angina, cancer (pain, nausea, depression), constipation, depression, diabetes, fatigue, infertility, insomnia, MS, PMS, menopause, hormone issues, fertility, sexual dysfunction, sinusitis, stroke, weight management, digestive disorders, irregular heart rate and high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels and many more.
