Health Benefits of Reflexology

the nerve endings

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is non-invasive and enhances the healing mechanisms of the body. Each application of pressure to particular points on the body stimulates the nerve endings, which has a healing effect on a specific referred area elsewhere in the body.


One of the main benefits of reflexology is in the way it promotes healing. A reflexology session opens up neural pathways, which helps the body send messages to other areas of the body. As an area is stimulated, so too are the nerves and cells in the remote target area. 

This can result in improved cognitive
function and nerve function. The brain and nerves are also stimulated, which
helps keep them functioning well.


Practitioners of reflexology believe
that pain and disease are results of a blockage in the life-enhancing energy in
the body. The stimulation of the nerve endings sends an activating message to
the central nervous system to trigger the onset of self-healing in the target


Other Benefits of Reflexology


Reflexology provides many health
benefits to those who use this treatment for healing, and here are a few more

When the body is balanced, vital
processes are improved. When the body is spending less energy fighting
ill-health, vitality is enhanced, which in turn gives your energy levels a
boost. The more sessions you take, the less tired you will be and the more
alive you will feel.


Improves Blood Flow and Circulation


The process of applying pressure to
nerve endings helps in improving blood flow and circulation throughout the
body. This will lead to an increase in the volume of oxygenated blood being
delivered to vital organs, which helps the organs to function as they should.
This helps overcome sluggishness and boosts the metabolic process. Improved
circulation also triggers faster growth and healing of damaged cells. 


Although reflexology doesn’t claim to
have the ability to cure any disease, improved blood circulation can assist in
many areas. An example is helping cancer patients. Chemotherapy and radiation
therapy may cause cancer patients to suffer from several side effects,
including digestive problems, anxiety and vomiting. Reflexology has been found
to be effective in reducing some of these associated side effects.


Along with the increased blood flow
and circulation that reflexology brings, these symptoms can be reduced while
antioxidant activity in the body is improved. This is one reason why some
reports claim that reflexology is beneficial for slowing the progression
of cancer. 


Improved Bladder Function


Reflexology has also been shown to
improve bladder functioning. This helps the body eliminate toxins from the body
and reduces the risk of urinary problems, such as urinary tract


This therapy is aimed at helping
individuals restore balance in their body functioning and systems throughout
their entire body. The stated benefits will not surprise those people who
undergo regular reflexology sessions, as they will very likely have experienced
improved health as a result.
