Imagine being able to alleviate pain and make yourself feel better just by pressing certain areas of your feet!
The ancient Chinese practice of Reflexology, a manual therapy focusing on the feet, has recently enjoyed a surge in popularity as a modern holistic therapy to relieve pain and stress.
For 3,000 years Chinese practitioners have used Reflexology to re-balance Qi (the life force flowing through energy channels) to treat many conditions.
There are between 7,000 and 7,200 nerve endings in the human foot, and each of these is a reflex point that corresponds to a body part.
The aim of reflexology is to release any blockages to health & happiness, and restore the free flow of energy and blood circulation throughout your body.
To achieve this, specific techniques are applied to reflex areas on the feet that correspond to tissues, organs and systems throughout the entire body.
This gradually helps to restore homoeostasis (balance) and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself, physically and emotionally.
There are many benefits to this practice.
Reflexology can assist with such conditions as:
- Back Problems
- Blood Pressure
- Frozen Shoulder
- Hay Fever
- Neck Problems
- Stress Disorders
- Hormone Imbalance
- Knee Problems
It also has many other benefits such as treating stress, anxiety, back pain, migraines, poor digestion issues like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) asthma or headaches amongst others!
Reflexologists often recommend that you don’t drink any alcohol before or after sessions as this this might amplify any effects from it during therapy.
As reflexology is a therapeutic treatment it helps to eliminate toxins in the body and leaves people feeling relaxed.
Results vary depending upon individual needs; however, overall there are many of reasons why you should give yourself some “me time” by scheduling your own session today with either Grada or Peter at Purple House.
Parents giving Reflexology to their baby’s feet may strengthen the natural loving bond between mother and baby, and father and baby.
It has been found that parents can easily calm their babies with this fuss free, convenient, and soothing treatment as well as helping conditions such as Colic, teething and digestive problems in babies.
Reflexology has also been helpful for people finding it difficult to conceive.
Some points on the foot are associated with a woman’s egg production and by manipulating these areas, Reflexologists claim they can correct the imbalances which can hamper pregnancy.
Why not try out a session at the Purple House or alternatively, treat yourself to a well-being weekend (Grada’s Reflexology Weekend Workshop) where you get to rest on the massage bed and be the recipient for half the workshop!
