Physical well-being is not just an absence of disease. It includes lifestyle choices that ensure good health. Proper nutrition and hydration, exercise, restful sleep, illness prevention, are all a part of but not limited to the body’s natural tendency for a state of homeostasis. Imbalances usually manifest first in the prana before the physical. Holistic therapy can, and does address the ‘whole’ and not just the body in isolation.
The specialized techniques used in Reflexology help restore the flow of Qi or life force energy throughout the body and that is what differentiates it from a regular foot massage.
Reflexology in its unique way helps alleviate various imbalances in the body and mind and manage/heal chronic issues such as but not limited to:
- Muscular tension in the neck
- Shoulder, Back, Sciatica
- Headaches, Sinus congestion
- Digestive complaints
- Compromised immunity
- Reduced blood and lymph circulation
- Hormonal imbalance
What is the difference between Foot and Hand Reflexology?
Both work on the same principle. Every reflex point on the feet is also represented on the hands however the wider canvas of the feet help to identify and isolate the reflex points with greater ease. Having said that, the hands offer much greater accessibility for self-help.
