Special Offer: Reflexology…

by admin / 09 September 2014 / No Comments


Stress has been described as a 21st century plague. The correlation between stress and depressed immune function is well documented. About 70% of disorders are directly or indirectly related to stress. These include hypertension, heart disease, insomnia, onset of malignancy, depression and digestive disorders.

Doctors understand this but do not have the time to spend on getting to the underlying causes of stress. A GP’s average consultation lasts 10 minutes or less. Treating symptoms with drugs offers short-term benefits, but patients are concerned about side-effects and can sometimes find this approach impersonal. Reflexology does not conflict with orthodox treatment. Many people are choosing Reflexology as a non-invasive way of coping with stress.


What Does Reflexology Offer?
The sympathetic nervous system initiates the stress response. Reflexology activates the parasympathetic nervous system that is concerned with relaxation and recuperation. This helps patients move from being stuck in the sympathetic overactive state to one of deep relaxation. The effect is cumulative, and allows the body’s systems to achieve normal balance. Studies show that if stress is managed properly, the immune system returns to normal. This lessens the likelihood of chronic health problems. It is also easier to face difficulties when mentally and physically relaxed.

Reflexology practice acknowledges the interaction of the mind, the body and the spirit. Since stress can be mental, physical or emotional this approach is significant. Tension is held in the muscles, which affects nerves and circulation. As muscular tension is released, pain is lessened. As nerve function improves and blood and lymph circulates freely, overall health and wellbeing improves.
