Foot Reflexology: The New Health Therapy

Foot Reflexology

Did you think that Foot Reflexology and Foot Therapy is the same as Foot massage?

That is a myth and it is in fact much more. Then what exactly is it and what does it do?

The treatment is guaranteed to eliminate foot pain and make you feel better but the method used and purpose induces healing and balances the corresponding organs. Certain reflex points on the foot respond through sensations of pain and sensitivity when traced and applied pressure to. The many small but expert movements of the physiotherapist incite muscle and nerve relaxation. Tensed or overstressed muscles and nerves are the root causes of most foot problems. Kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel and pushing deep into the arch are just a few of the many small, intense movements you will experience during a foot reflexology treatment.

Addressing anything from headaches to sinus problems to stomach issues, if sensitivity or tenderness is experienced when certain areas of the foot are stimulated, it usually indicates bodily weaknesses or imbalances within the corresponding organ. With repeated practice of applying pressure and manipulating nerve endings (traditionally in the foot), reflexology can help to clear any channels of blocked energy through moving the flow of blood, nutrients and nerve impulses to ultimately improve overall health and balance. In addition to manipulating the pressure points on the foot, reflexologists are trained to provide deep tissue massage to trigger relaxation as well.

The Benefits:

  • Cleanses the body of toxins
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Increases circulation
  • Promotes healing
  • Balances energy
  • Reduces general and chronic foot pain

To be effective, a foot reflexology practitioner must be certified and understand the meridians related to each pressure point. Only healthcare clinics like Curafoot offer authentic foot reflexology. This therapeutic treatment lasts approximately a half hour. It’s vital to have a conversation with your reflexologist beforehand for a better understanding of your foot related issues.

During a reflexology session, the foot therapist may concentrate on specific areas to alleviate ailments or work on the whole foot with the aim of strengthening every system in the body.

Things to Remember:

  • Wait for one hour for the massage after a meal before taking the foot reflexology session
  • Don’t receive reflexology if you are pregnant
  • Drink water following the treatment to eliminate toxins and lactic acid buildup that occurs during the massage
  • Visit CuraFoot Foot & Ankle Clinic first if you have existing foot problems or foot injuries.
