Reflexology Treatment for Stress & Tension Release

Stress is the body's reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses. Stress symptoms can affect your body, your thoughts and feelings, and your behavior. Being able to recognize common stress symptoms can help you manage them; medical research estimates as much as 90 percent of illness and disease is stress-related. 

 

Stress can interfere with your physical functioning and bodily processes. Stress that's left unchecked can contribute to many health problems:

  • High blood pressure

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Obesity 

  • Diabetes

  • Digestive issues

  • Muscle & Joint pain 

  • Lower immune system 

  • Hormonal imbalances 

  • Changes in skin texture

 

Some of the psychological and emotional signs that you're stressed out include:

  • Depression or anxiety.

  • Anger, irritability, or restlessness.

  • Feeling overwhelmed, unmotivated, or unfocused.

  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much.

  • Racing thoughts or constant worry.

  • Problems with your memory or concentration.

  • Making bad decisions.

 

Reflexology can greatly help with reducing the effects stress has on you by putting the body in a state of complete deep relaxation, diminishing the effects of stress.  In this state muscular tension is released, nerve function improved, blood and lymph circulate freely and overall health and wellbeing are improved as Reflexology gently encourages the body to move towards the improved functioning of all its systems. 

Clients have found amazing relief from stress in its emotional,  mental & physical forms, creating a wonderful new way for them to feel and to enjoy their life. 

 

Reflexology Treatment to Help With Depression & Anxiety

Depression and anxiety disorders are different, but people with depression often experience symptoms similar to those of an anxiety disorder, such as nervousness, irritability, and problems sleeping and concentrating. But each disorder has its own causes and its own emotional and behavioral symptoms.

Many studies have revealed that Reflexology can be very effective in reducing pain and psychological distress like depression and anxiety. This body work relieves symptoms of depression as it stimulates particular pressure points/nerve endings in the hands and feet.

Symptoms may include:

  • Emotional extremes

  • Feeling overwhelmed 

  • Constant and obsessive worrying

  • Obsessive and repetitive mental arguments 

  • Finding it hard to concentrate, becoming easily distracted

Reflexology Treatment For Lymphatic Drainage

The lymphatic system, or lymphoid system, is an organ system that is part of the circulatory system and the immune system. It is made up of a large network of lymphatic vessels, lymphatic or lymphoid organs, and lymphoid tissues. The vessels carry a clear fluid called lymph towards the heart. Your lymphatic system, part of your immune system, has many functions. They include protecting your body from illness-causing invaders, maintaining body fluid levels, absorbing digestive tract fats and removing cellular waste. 

 

Reflexology Lymph Drainage follows the lymphatic reflexes on the feet to encourage the movement of lymph around the body. This specialist technique can not only benefit sufferers of lymphoedema, but can help reduce the symptoms of many other conditions.

 

Reflexology Treatment To Help Boost Your Immune System

The immune system is the body's defense against infections, it attacks germs and helps keep us healthy. When we are stressed our immune system lowers, making us more prone to illness. Reflexology reduces stress throughout the body's systems to improve blood and lymph circulation and remove toxins from the body's tissues. It is believed to encourage the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel-good hormones, well documented in their ability to relieve stress.

 

Having regular Reflexology as maintenance, helps to keep your body strong and healthy. If you have been, or are, sick then reflexology can boost your immune system and aid in your recovery, reducing the amount of sick days you experience.

 

Reflexology Treatment To Help With Symptoms of IBS & Other Digestive Issues

Your gut health is so important to your overall health. Our gut is where holistically we hold our emotions, so we all want to keep our digestive system in balance so that we are in balance. 

The effects of irritable bowel syndrome, IBS, can range from mildly unpleasant to massively debilitating. It’s a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhoea or constipation, or both. IBS is a chronic condition that you'll need to manage long term. Reflexology is very effective in managing IBS. When doing a treatment I work a lot on the digestive system, the stomach, the small and large intestines, clearing any blockages in the process and 'waking up' the body's digestion.

Other Common Digestive Conditions that Reflexology helps with are:

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) When stomach acid backs up into your oesophagus — a condition called acid reflux — you may feel a burning pain in the middle of your chest

  • Gallstones

  • Celiac Disease

  • Crohn's Disease

  • Ulcerative Colitis

  • Diverticulitis

  • Haemorrhoids

Reflexology helps stimulate the body's overall blood circulation.Symptoms of poor circulation are:

  • Oedema, fluid retention

  • Cognitive dysfunction

  • Digestive problems.

  • Fatigue

  • Joint pain and muscle cramping.

During a treatment I work on the heart and related organs to reduce blood pressure and all  related systems in the body to improve blood circulation.

 

Reflexology Treatment To Relieve Muscular & Joint Pain Throughout The Body

The most common causes of muscle pain are tension, stress, overuse and minor injuries. This type of pain is usually localized, affecting just a few muscles or a small part of your body.

Reflexology stimulates nerves in the body to encourage blood flow. Because of this, reflexology is thought to prevent and stop pain. 

Having regular Reflexology treatments for pain relief uses techniques that also help with stress, fibromyalgia, chronic bowel diseases, muscle pain, and even difficulty breathing due to tight muscles.

 

Reflexology Treatment To Help With Sleeping Disorders & Insomnia

Insomnia, also known as sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder in which you have trouble sleeping. You may have difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep as long as desired. Insomnia is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability and a depressed mood. It makes it very difficult to function properly during your day and it is very wearing on the body, mind & soul. 

Reflexology is great for bringing the body into balance and tackling the causes of insomnia: chronic stress, emotional trauma or illness. There are studies showing that Reflexology has a positive impact on sleep quality and quantity. Reflexology can influence sleep, both directly and indirectly, through several different pathways.
