Reflexology encourages the body to relax
One of the most important benefits of Reflexology is its efficacy in reducing stress. Approximately 75% of disorders can be related to stress and nerve tension. Because Reflexology encourages the body to relax, other functions are also affected thus allowing the body to "calm down". Every part of the body receives its nerve supply direct for the spine Abnormal tension leads to tightening of the muscles of the spine, thus nerves are affected resulting in pain or fatigue. When tension is relaxed the muscles cease to contract. Blood vessels too are relaxed, reducing vascular constriction and allowing circulation to flow freely, thereby allowing the necessary oxygen and nutrients to flow to all the body tissues and organs. This in turn helps cleanse the body of toxins and impurities.
Stress is difficult to avoid
Stress is difficult to avoid. It is an integral part of modern life. The days when the stress syndrome was associated only with high-powered business executives are long gone. Today young children, teenagers, women, men, and the elderly are all subject to varying degrees of stress.
Survival in our fast paced century is stressful. The speed of change and modern technology contributes to malfunctions in the body and psyche. The barrage of Stressors is unrelenting - traffic, television, internet, social media, study commitments, job pressure, family problems, wars, famines, disease, environmental problems, electronic smog (computers & mobile phones) financial problems, global problems, pollution ...... the list is endless.
