Nine benefits of a foot reflex therapy

A foot reflex zone therapy reduces the disorders in a wide range of acute or chronic conditions by activating the self-healing effect of the body. In addition, foot reflex zone therapy provides an important contribution to overall health and well being.

After a foot reflex zone therapy for a specific condition, many clients choose to continue regular treatments to maintain overall health and wellness improvements.

Stress is an all-important factor against the recovery of diseases

There is a strong relationship between stress and physical disorders such as muscular tension, cramps, muscle weakness, stomach and intestinal problems, headache etc. Stress is a brain reaction in the first place. The brain, in case of stress, is responsible for all kinds of physical changes. Where regular medicine cannot show inflammation, malfunctioning or other diseases, you may experience physical disorders from stress, even without feeling stressed.

With the ever-increasing amount of stress in our lives, foot reflexology therapy helps us to reduce the physical, mental and emotional effects of stress.

Most people experience the benefits of a foot reflex zone therapy immediately after the first treatment. However, there is also a group who, after first treatment, experiences disorders of fatigue or frequent urination. These symptoms usually disappear after a day. This group will benefit from a foot reflex zone therapy after the second treatment.

1. Total relaxation: foot reflex zone therapy slows down heart rate, lowers blood pressure, slows respiration, induces deeper breathing and reduces stress.
