Reflexology is a massage therapy founded on the ancient Chinese belief that there is vital energy, known as qi (“chi”) that flows from the hands and feet throughout the human body. And when there is interference that blocks the energy path, a person may feel stress or anxious. Using mapped trigger points on the hands or feet, a reflexologist applies pressure to allow qi to flow freely through the body for a healthier life. The symptoms you describe will help the reflexologist to locate the pressure points that will provide relief.
Since reflexology is a form of massage therapy, it is very therapeutic in relieving stress. It is safe for individuals of all ages – from children to seniors with any health condition. The reflexologist will provide pressure that will help improve circulation and reduce stress. You may feel a positive sensation during the stimulation of nerve endings, but there is no pain.
Reflexology is a very calming and relaxing experience that is known to help reduce anxiety. In today’s fast-paced society, both adults and children can feel overwhelmed or anxious. Also, certain health conditions can cause anxiety in some individuals. A recent study published by the National Institutes of Health showed reflexology reduced anxiety in patients receiving treatment for breast or lung cancer. In a randomized controlled study, reflexology significantly reduced anxiety in patients after heart surgery.
There are more than 7,000 nerve endings in the foot alone. And when used as a complementary therapy, reflexology can help reduce pain by unblocking any disrupted energy flow (qi) to promote self-healing in the body.
