While foot reflexology, or reflexology in general, is not a curative or diagnostic procedure, it has a vast variety of health benefits ranging from health conditions that are as simple as stress, or prevent and reduce the symptoms of certain chronic illnesses. After a couple of Foot Reflexology sessions, our clients at Relax The Feet, can naturally feel the magical results of the therapy. Even a single session makes one feel light and rejuvenated. But then again, it’s not just about relieving stress, but also fighting the symptoms of serious health conditions. Some of the chronic illnesses that reflexology can help manage are:
Type 2 Diabetes
Foot reflexologists are knowledgeable in the variety of massage forms and appropriate ways to knead the body’s tissue to stimulate a better blood circulation, which has amazing benefits for diabetic neuropathy and other issues. Many people have noticed the wonders of foot reflexology in managing their diabetes. In fact, there is actually a recent scientific review that concludes how foot reflexology can bring a positive effect in type 2 diabetes.
Since foot reflexology is a relaxation therapy, it naturally soothes and reduces migraine and other forms of headaches. Based on the outcome of a scientific study, it was concluded that one good Foot Reflexology session has the same effect, but in a natural way, like flunarizine, a drug that is used to prevent and treat migraine and severe headaches.
According to recent statistics, over 50 million people are affected with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. And anyone who has the diseases can attest to the agonizing pain that its symptoms bring. But there have been several studies, most of them conducted just recently, suggesting that Foot Reflexology indeed helps manage and reduce the pain associated with the symptoms of arthritis. In fact, some studies also suggest that reflexology works even better than painkillers for arthritis.
Being a relaxation therapy, Foot Reflexology helps soothe the mind, eliminating stress and anxiety. As a result, it also helps reduce hypertension. By applying the right pressure and hitting the correct reflex points, reflexology stimulates the nerve endings, which will ultimately improve and regulate one’s blood circulation.
One of the most common mental health conditions, affecting millions of people in the US alone, are anxiety and depression. While there are prescribed medications that help treat these conditions, studies have found that foot reflexology could gradually and effectively reduce and prevent depression and anxiety, especially for women after their menopause.
