Reflexology reduces stress and creates deep relaxation
Stress is any interference that disturbs a person’s healthy mental and physical well-being or any influence that disturbs the natural equilibrium of the body or mind. Stress is the physiological response of the body to threat or danger or sudden stress. It is useful, when the body prepares itself for sudden action, either to run away or stay and fight.
Stress surrounds our life causing problems when we cannot cope. It is at these times when we can’t handle stress it compromises our immune system and we become more susceptible to illness and disease.
Reflexology reduces stress by creating deep relaxation and creating a sense of balance and well-being. Reflexology helps the nervous system to calm down and function more normally. When you apply reflexology you will stimulate more than 7000 nerves in the feet and this can encourage opening and clearing of neural pathways. Helping to calm the body down and returning it to its natural rhythms.
Reflexology improves the circulation
In circulatory system the blood is in constant circulation, which helps to balance body temperature; transport vitamins and nutrition’s to the entire body (arteries); ensure constant metabolism (capillary blood vessels) and removal residues through veins. Bloodstream connects entire body as one.
Lymphatic system is a secondary circulatory system that drains excess fluids from tissues and protects the body against invasion and infection.
The therapeutic techniques in reflexology stimulate both systems as palms and feet are distant parts of the body. As a result of the therapy, your body easily removes toxins and other excess residues. So your body defence mechanisms get stronger and can fight diseases better.
To strengthen your blood and lymphatic stream you should eat organic food, fresh and possibly local vegetables and fruits. It is also important to drink quality water and do regular physical activities.
