What is reflexology?
Reflexology is an ancient healing art. Evidence has been found in Egyptian tombs of images of people receiving hand and foot reflexology. It has also been found in China as well as in ancient Indian medicine.
Known as zone therapy, reflexology is a manual treatment where pressure is applied to the reflex points of the hands, feet and ears.
Body. In addition to offering holistic or overall health benefits, reflexology massage is also very relaxing and is frequently used to relieve tension and stress. Without scientific evidence or studies, it is believed that these different reflex points are related to other regions (or areas) of the body. Massaging these points can relieve and cure disease to improve the health of these areas of the body.
Some reflexology fanatics claim that reflexology is not massage. It is a treatment to restore the body’s normal energy flow by applying pressure to specific points on the feet, hands or ears.
There aren’t many studies on reflexology, and many experts consider those that do exist to be incomplete. Additionally, it is wise to understand that reflexology is not an effective treatment for any medical condition. However, reflexology may have some value as a complementary therapy to help reduce symptoms and improve a person’s quality of life.
Usually, reflexology does not require oils or lotions, but these products can be used in massage therapy as they can allow smoother massages while providing hydrating benefits.
Our reflexology treatments are typically performed on your feet and hands with little or no equipment required and minimal space required. This makes this massage therapy a top-rated service at home, in the workplace, in the office, at exhibitions, or for urgent treatment.
How does reflexology work?
The main theory of reflexology is the mapping of reflex points to other parts of the body. These points are divided into five regions on each hand or foot, drawing a line vertically extending from each toe or finger.
It is agreed that by manipulating the reflex points in these five regions, our massage therapist may cause an impact on the well-being of the corresponding body part.
Reflexology is also known in terms of natural body energy (Qi or chi), a concept derived from traditional Chinese medicine. Massage therapists believe that stress and illness can be caused by energy blockages in the body, which cause illness, limit the release of tension, and prevent healing.
By processing the parts of the feet and hands connected to other body areas, they believe that this Qi is being manipulated to restore balance to that part of the body.
Reflexology is incredibly relaxing and is a great treatment for anyone, regardless of age. It does not require any equipment and is a straightforward therapy to be enjoyed anywhere and with minimal preparation.
On top of that, while all types of massage therapy are excellent natural healers, reflexology focuses specifically on rebalancing your health and the overall balance of your body. It is also a therapy you should consider for treating symptoms all over your body, headaches, sinus problems, or more internal pain.
To continue, what are the problems or situations, therefore the truths that motivate a person to seek a solution which could be a reflexology massage?
Are you suffering from anxiety and stress?
Unfortunately, stress and anxiety are on the rise in Canada. Almost 75% of adults have felt, at some point in the past year, so stressed that they feel overwhelmed or unable to break free.
So if you are feeling stressed or anxious, you are definitely not the only person!
Without relief, stress can continue to build up, fueling more anxiety and eventually leading to mild depression.
Reflexology can help relieve stress and anxiety. It is especially beneficial when used with other natural remedies such as a healthier diet, reduced alcohol and caffeine intake, better sleep, and regular physical activity.
But above all, if you do not attach too much importance to the results, but to the actions that lead to the results, because in this sense, you are in control.
Reflexology works by applying gentle pressure to the reflex regions of your feet or hands that correspond to different parts of your body. The special massage used by our qualified massage therapists unblocks the nerve endings in the feet or hands, rebalances the lymphatic system and stimulates your blood circulation.
In this way, reflexology produces a calm state throughout your body and mind, leaving you less stressed and anxious. This relief is temporary because you need to understand the process involved that creates and recreates your stress or anxiety. Do you have in mind to emphasize the results and thus forget to put your energy into the actions or the new actions to be done?
Do you have muscle pain?
When you overdo it in your home, garden, or exercise, muscle pain is common among those with busy, active lives.
Reflexology can be used as an alternative to physiotherapy. In a recent study of physiotherapists, 68% of respondents rated reflexology as very good, good, or as good as physiotherapy practices.
Researchers have scientifically tested reflexology as a treatment for acute pain. They found that people felt about 40% less pain and could endure the pain about 45% longer when they used reflexology as a method of pain relief.
Our reflexology massage therapists use their fingers and thumbs on the reflex regions of the feet or hands that act on pain in different parts of the body. We don’t yet know exactly why reflexology works so well on acute pain. One theory is that reflexology works on nerve endings in the feet or hands to block pain signals received in the brain from other parts of the body, such as the neck or lower back.
A recent study also suggests that deeply soothing foot massage as part of reflexology treatment reduces pain perception and thus relieves muscle pain.
Are you often in a bad mood with your migraines?
Headache or migraine is the third most common disease in the world. Almost 15% of the population claims to suffer from a particularly severe migraine, affecting more women than men.
Imagine how much a headache can affect your mood and your joy—no wonder the drug to relieve it is the most sold on this planet. However, taking pain relievers often has disastrous side effects on your overall health, not to mention your habit, which causes you to take increasingly strong medications to have beneficial effects.
Relieving your headaches and migraines is one of the most popular massages in reflexology. Our massage therapists apply light pressure to the reflex regions of your feet or hands that correspond to different parts of your body.
Stimulating these areas on your feet or hands opens up neural pathways, improves blood flow, and removes stored tension in areas of your body such as your neck and shoulders.
Reflexology also helps you flush out toxins such as alcohol and caffeine, which, if taken in excess, can lead to headaches and migraines.
Are you bothered by your insomnia?
Insomnia and sleep disorders are major problems today in Canada and around the world. In fact, polls show that more than half of us have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.
Obviously, emotional issues like stress and anxiety can cause insomnia and trouble sleeping. Still, it’s our way of life, such as diet, alcohol, caffeine, overuse, stimulation of excess images or noise contributing the most to poor sleep.
Chronic conditions such as chronic joint or back pain can also lead to many sleepless nights.
The physical and mental consequences of a prolonged period of sleep deprivation are significant. If you take unnatural remedies to help you regain restful sleep, you only make your condition worse.
Reflexology is a natural remedy that can ease your mind and help you sleep better. It works by stimulating the reflex regions of your feet or hands to free and relax your body and calm your mind.
Do you often have constipation or diarrhea?
Digestion problems such as constipation, diarrhea, heartburn and bloating are prevalent. It is estimated that in Canada, about 4 in 10 people have at least one digestive symptom at some time.
Our lifestyles today often have an unfortunate impact on our digestive health. We tend to be very busy, grab food on the go, run from appointment to appointment, and often feel stressed and anxious.
It’s no wonder that so many people are looking for over-the-counter drugstore medications to help with conditions like constipation, indigestion, and upset stomach. These medications may provide you with some relief in the short term, but you may increase your digestion problems and create more over the long term.
Our reflexology massage can help you digest better by removing toxins from your body and reducing your stress.
