Benefits of Reflexology

feet in grass (dreamstime_9388153)Experience has shown me that reflexology may have many benefits, for example:

  • It can help induce relaxation, relieve tension and aid sleep.
  • It may improve mood and wellbeing.
  • It is non-intrusive and natural and only requires you to remove your shoes and socks.
  • It treats the whole person not just the symptoms, which allows the treatment to complement and enhance conventional medical approaches.

Clients often report feeling calmer, clear-headed and more focused following a treatment. It may result in an increased sense of wellbeing, as well as leaving you feeling more relaxed or more energized depending on your individual requirements. Often it may lead to a good night’s sleep.

I just wanted to drop you a little note to say how much I enjoyed my reflexology session with you last week. For the rest of the day I felt amazing, very calm and totally relaxed… like I was floating on air. I’m still feeling those benefits now. Thanks again and I hope to visit you again in the near future for a top up.

I have personally found that reflexology benefits many clients who have come to me for stress-related disorders, which may be affecting their sleep, mood or health. It may also benefit people with hormonal imbalances, digestive problems, skin problems, during pregnancy and those living with long term illnesses.

Coping with Chronic Health Conditions

Many of us have chronic illnesses that can interfere with our daily lives and that worsen when we are under stress. Whilst reflexology does not claim to cure or alleviate these conditions, it certainly seems to help us to relax and improve our feelings of wellbeing and this in turn can help us cope with the pain and discomfort. So reflexology for health purposes can work well alongside conventional medical care and medications.

Many health conditions now have dedicated charitable organisations that offer support and information to sufferers and an increasing number of these are recognising the value of having reflexology alongside conventional medical care. Examples include:

Anxiety UK – which supports those living with anxiety disorders and phobias. They have a new smartphone app called Stress Tips to help users deal with their stress and anxiety. And they recommend reflexology as a useful complementary therapy.

The IBS Network – offers advice, the latest research and a self-care plan. They recommend complementary therapies such as reflexology under their top 10 tips for managing Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Overall, I believe that reflexology can help us achieve and maintain better health as well as an increased sense of contentment.
