Reflexology is a foot massage where the practitioner applies pressure to a system of zones and reflexes that affects the corresponding areas of the body.
Reflexology has been shown to have a positive impact on almost every medical condition from cellulitis to high blood pressure.
Reflexology stimulates the lymph system and therefore aids the body’s natural healing process.
Reflexology and Cancer (Canceractive.com)
Reflexology is a holistic healing method that involves pressure and massage of the reflex points on the feet. It teaches that life force energy moves throughout the body via nerve and meridian energy pathways and that, if this is blocked, it can cause imbalance. These blockages can be detected via the reflex ponts and dissipated by pressure and massage techniques which encourage healing.
Reflexology can help alleviate pain and anxiety, low mood, hot flushes, nausea, vomiting and fatigue, as well as helping tissue healing. This treatment is considered generally safe for people with cancer, although contra-indicated if there is a suspicion of a deep vein thrombosis in the leg.
Reflexology and Pregnancy
Reflexology eases pregnancy, delivery and post-partum effects. Women who receive reflexology can experience shorter labour times and use less analgesia.
In recent studies, reflexology showed a postive impact on post-partum depression, anxiety, urination and bowel movements.
In extensive tests Reflexology has been shown to help with onset of labour and therefore reduces the likelihood of induction.
