Holistic reflexology treatments are beneficial for relaxation, health and well being, helping to reduce stress, tension and anxiety.
The main focus surrounding these benefits is a reduction in stress levels. Stress causes a hormone response in the body known as fight or flight, releasing adrenaline and cortisone. Both these hormones, if over produced, can cause inflammation in the body leading to many health problems and can cause or aggitate conditions such as headaches, migraines, muscle tension, digestive disorders, IBS, mental health conditions anxiety and depression.
They can cause an increase in blood glucose levels to meet metabolic demand, they can also curb functions deemed non essential therefore altering immune system response, the function of the digestive system, the reproductive system and growth processes.
People are juggling so many responsibilities, work, family, finances and it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind and forget to take time out for yourself. Everyone needs to rest and have some relaxation to feel refreshed and improve well being.
Because Reflexology is such a relaxing treatment, it allows your body to re balance and helps it return to a state of harmony.
