Foot Reflexology: how it works and benefits

Reflexology is a manual stimulation technique that falls within the bio-natural disciplines.

Foot reflexology is a treatment that’s been practiced for centuries, it can be traced as far back as 2330 B.C.

It involves applying pressure to different points on the bottom of the foot. According to traditional Chinese medicine, these points correspond to different areas of the body.

They are believed to have multiple benefits, including reducing stress, aiding digestion, and promoting sound sleep.

Foot reflexology may help with:

  • Stress and relaxation: reflexology helps by increasing blood flow through the body, which helps to decrease stress and anxiety and lower blood pressure. When you feel less stress and less anxious, it’s easy to feel relaxed
  • Pain management: foot reflexology may also help with managing both acute and chronic pain, also after an operation.
  • Digestion: one of the reflex points found on your feet is connected to your stomach, when this particular point is stimulated, it will increase blood flow to your stomach, helping to improve digestion.
  • Eyestrain: reflexology can help reverse some of the stress we put on our eyes just from our daily activities; these pressure points help relax the tight muscles caused by looking at our screens all day
  • Improved sleep: considering reflexology may be beneficial in helping you relax and reduce stress, it’s no surprise that some say it may help promote a more restful night’s sleep; because reflexology is moving energy and improving overall circulation, it’s easy to have a restful night’s sleep after a treatment.
