Living in a busy and fast-paced city like London can put you under stress, which can cause a wide range of health problems like digestive problems, insomnia, tension headaches, and hormonal imbalance. Finding relief from stress can be as easy as indulging in a massage—specifically reflexology.
What is Reflexology?
You see certain reflexes in your feet and hands correspond to different glands, organs, and bodily systems. During a reflexology massage (also referred to as 'zone therapy'), pressure is applied to the reflex points in the feet, hands, and ears to change the way your body feels. Therapeutically manipulating reflex points can clear energy pathways to promote health and improved overall sense of well-being.
Benefits of Reflexology
It is believed that stress can clog your energy pathways, preventing good energy from flowing throughout your body and causing ailments. Reflexology works to restore positive energy flow by massaging your reflex points. An hour of therapeutic treatment can already help minimise the back pain and pain caused by arthritis and sports injuries.
Reflexology massage has become a popular form of alternative therapy and therapeutic treatment in modern medicine. It improves circulation, promotes relaxation, reduces pain, and promotes overall healing. Contemporary doctors have begun to recognise reflexology as a complementary therapy, recommending it to patients with serious illnesses like cancer, as well as for those who are under post-operative care to encourage faster healing.
Reflexology massage is not just therapeutic—it is also relaxing. So if you find yourself tense and anxious, you might want to book this type of massage at home or in your office. There are massage therapists in London with mobile services, enabling them to provide you with this type of massage no matter where you are.
A reflexology massage treatment can last for 45 minutes to an hour. After a quick assessment of your lifestyle and overall health, the massage therapist will decide on the kind of reflexology massage that you will need. You will be asked to lay on a massage table or sit on a recliner. A typical reflexology session will start at your feet to identify tension areas. Brisk movements may be performed by the therapist to warm the feet up. Massage items like rubber bands, sticks of wood, and rubber balls may be used by the therapist to further stimulate your pressure points. After a session, you will feel relaxed, calm, and in some cases, sleepy.
