Reflexology promotes the body’s natural ability to adjust and balance in times of stress. It has been shown to improve circulation. This boosts the supply of oxygen to the muscles and other body tissues and speeds up the elimination of waste products such as lactic acid in the muscles from exercising.
This in turn reduces muscle tension and soreness, decreasing healing time for injuries and reduces swelling from injuries or illness, The immune system, skin tone and the ability to concentrate also improve when circulation is increased. Reflexology is a massage treatment of pressure points on the hands and feet. A gentle massage continuing up to the knees and elbows assists in opening circulation pathways through the body.
