Reflexology to the rescue for optimal health
Sore muscles? Stressed? Lacking energy?
IT’S time to get outside and enjoy the Sunshine Coast sunshine. From gardening, golfing, biking, kayaking, surfing, swimming, boating and every spring/summer activity in between, it’s vital to be pain free to enjoy the activities you love.
These new activities can cause muscle fatigue, aches and pains, so now more than ever you should be maintaining a regular reflexology schedule.
Reflexology can be traced back to ancient civilisations of Egypt between 2500 and 3000 BC, yet some people still don’t fully understand the benefits.
Reflexology is a natural, deeply relaxing pressure therapy which provides balance in physical, mental, emotional and energetic levels in the human body.
Whether you have a serious physical illness, injury, emotional issue or simply need to de-stress, reflexology has proven many times to be uplifting, revitalising and deeply relaxing – promoting general health and well-being.
When used on a regular basis, reflexology acts as a powerful preventative measure against illness. All this from a foot rub? It is far from just a foot massage – it is designed to treat all areas of the body via the feet, face, hands and ears.
These have a set of reflex points corresponding with all parts of the body.
For example, the area for the spine follows the line from your big toe to your heel. The heart reflex is largely on the ball of the left foot and the toes relate to the head and neck area.
Each reflex area is worked using specific techniques, applying smooth, firm pressure. Tenderness or pain in a reflex area can indicate congestion in that corresponding part of the body.
Through the face and the feet, the autonomic nervous system, lymphatic system, circulation and energy meridians are all affected. Balance is restored by the stimulation or sedation of the reflex points using specialised techniques, boosting your energy, relieving pain and improving your health.
Put simply, reflexology can help everyone, regardless of age or occupation.
