Stress and Reflexology
Claims that when pressure is applied to the feet it can produce a relaxing effect on other parts of the body.
-- Norman, Laura; Thomas Cowan (1989). The Reflexology Handbook, A Complete Guide. Piatkus. pp. 17.
Benefits reported include enhanced stress coping, improvements in: Digestive functions, Clarity, Headaches, Sleep, Energy Levels and Emotional Stability.
By applying gentle pressure to your feet a reflexologist can locate imbalances. Working on these points the reflexologist is able to release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Stress and tension are freed, and circulation and elimination are improved, encouraging the body to heal itself at its own pace.
