Reflexology: How 5000-Year-Old Touch Therapy is Still Healing Lives
Are you looking to begin a new career in the health and wellness industry or are you a health professional looking to add to your wellness repertoire? Did you know that our generation is the most stressed and sickest? Not only is our air dirty and our food toxic, but the need for the perfect job, car, body and life is shortening lives.
We have come a long way since the dangers of measles, whooping cough, smallpox and malaria. Today, the number of children and adult diseases are frightening. We now face illnesses like heart disease, stroke, cancers, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, type-2 diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver and more. Although these diseases are preventable and treatable, the problem is that conventional medicine creates side effects which are often more damaging than the actual medicine. Further, cancer treatments and new, innovative drugs are unaffordable to the average person.
Reduces Inflammation and Degenerative Diseases
Fortunately, the past several years have seen both the young and old evaluate their lifestyles and take back their health. People of all ages and illness are turning to non-conventional medicine and healing therapies, like reflexology. Research reveals that stress and anxiety increase the chances of disease, and treatments like reflexology can reduce cortisol levels, which minimise the chances of inflammation and degenerative disease. Reflexology also reduces insomnia, relieves anxiety, boosts energy levels and helps the body heal itself.
Reflexology Improves Flow of Energy into Organs Healing the Body
Reflexology is a touch therapy that teaches that the blockage of ‘chi’, also known as energy, causes illness and disease in the body. The belief is that the organs and glands, nerves and tissues, and bones and ligaments relate to a pressure point in the hands, feet and ears. By using massage and pressure, this 5000-year-old treatment improves the flow of energy into a specific organ. This enables the patient’s body to heal naturally and much faster and safer than conventional medications.
