Research on the benefits of reflexology

Reflexology is the practice of strategically applying pressure to areas of the feet and hands. Many studies have been made in relation to the effectiveness of reflexology. This paper reviews the practice of reflexology, and results of studies on the practice of this art.

First, what is reflexology? Reflexology is the practice of strategically applying pressure to areas of the feet and hands, because they correspond to specific organs of the body. By stimulating nerves on specific areas of the feet and hands, we can stimulate blood circulation and eliminate toxins accumulate in the corresponding organs and body systems. Reflexology is safe and effective for everyone. Furthermore, it can be used throughout his life.

So how can reflexology really help you? Research has found that not only is it beneficial as a tool for relaxation and relieving stress, but it is also an effective tool for improving circulation; relieve pain, detoxification, recovery from surgery, and as a stimulator of the immune system and nervous. In fact, many people suffering from diseases such as allergies, chronic sinus problems, acid reflux, migraines, PMS, menopause, insomnia, fertility problems and even arthritis have been greatly helped by reflexology treatments.

Because reflexology works to put the body in a state of well-being, it is beneficial for all body systems. Reflexology has been shown to relieve many common pregnancy complaints, including headaches, nausea, back pain, stress and anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, constipation, ankle swelling and digestive problems. In addition, in one study, women who had at least 10 sessions of reflexology have been shown to reduce both labor during childbirth, and fewer complications of childbirth than women not treatment.

Children can enjoy reflexology in many ways too. Some of the most common reasons why a conventional medical treatment today are ear infections, constipation, colic and bedwetting. Reflexology has been shown to improve these problems considerably. Research has shown that children with cerebral palsy who received reflexology work actually been an increase growth rate for children who did not receive treatment. There are many additional benefits for children in the practice of this art.

In a society that relies on prescription drugs chemically loaded to heal the sick, especially among the elderly, reflexology allows successes deserve to be examined. Did you know that older patients who routinely receive a reflexology treatment to reduce their cholesterol, reduce and maintain blood pressure and treat painful digestion better than drugs? Elderly patients who have reflexology mats in their homes experience less pain and a greater sense of control during walking.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg. For patients recovering from surgery, reflexology can be a dream come true. Studies have shown that patients who received treatment reflexology after surgery experienced pain less than patients who received only analgesics. In addition, reflexology has been shown to be more effective than catheterization if urinary retention after surgery.

Reflexology has made its mark in the world of alternative therapies because it works. Try it and see the results for yourself. Once you try it, you too will become a believer. Find yourself a good reflexologist, or better yet, learn the techniques for yourself. Having the knowledge to treat yourself and your family is one of the best things you can do.
